The Art Of DPI - Black Dynamite And Tengu Masks

D-Pi (Aka Ronald Wimberly) has been killing it lately, having contributed his awesome style to creating the absolutely insane Adult Swim adaptation of Black Dynamite, to working on comics with French publishers, to offering his self proclaimed 'graphic deviance' to brands like ECKO, DKNY and more. His angular, hyperkinetic style explodes with movement and personality, while also showing traces off his main influences: woodcut artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi and Jean Giraud Moebius, a veritable melting pot of styles coming together into something altogether new.

Wimberly even embodies a persona: A hoodie wearing Tengu from Brooklyn who talks about himself in the third person. Artists can be such characters sometimes, huh? Check out more of his awesome work after the break!
