After I discovered I really liked the come with me if you want to live line I started to listen to the theme for Terminator for cues. I snatched the iconic drums and copied a few of thos patterns, then filled out the track with softer instrumentals. I like the balance. You might too, have a listen.

I was listening to, The Black Guy Who Tips, one of my favorite podcasts and they had a panel discussion that was about , Black Twitter. The article they cited said that Black Twitter tended to be “irresponsible” and “dangerous.” So I fired up Illustrator and got to designing a graphic.
