Vincent's Classes

I am an Atlanta native from the south side of the metropolitan area. I have been an avid customer of comic books, manga, and gaming since the 1980's and drawing and creating characters all my life and studied illustration at the Atlanta College of Art and Clayton State College.

After college I did commissions for album covers and business logos. I began teaching comic book creation in 2013 with a prison ministry. During and shortly before teaching, I began to do comic book art commissions. That lead me to finally take the risk and start my own comic book company (Forerunner comics) in 2014.

Since then I have self published 4 titles and have drawn and inked comic books and character designs for other independent comic book companies in the city as well as vended at a number of comic conventions.

As a child, my parents wanted to enroll me in art classes for my improvement, yet there were no classes that instructed you on how the process of creating your own book worked. So I decided to take what I know and give students the opportunity to learn what I was never taught about sequential art in my youth.
