"American Royalty" by Sam Spratt commissioned by Childish Gambino
Sam Spratt’s commissioned illustrations for actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.
"What began as cover art for his mixtape ‘Royalty’ evolved into a series of Rockwell-esque vignettes on Americana meant to highlight the side of hip-hop that tends to take a back seat to “money, cars, and jewelry” – where you come from.
The collection of 10 illustrations cover a wide-spectrum of the little moments – the struggles, the simple pleasures, the risks, the irony, the humor, the hopes, and the realities of the American life that maybe isn’t quite so cookie cutter.” Prints available at royalty.samspratt.com.

Free The Town by Nikyatu Jusu - A forthcoming feature film set in Freetown, Sierra Leone
Exciting news! Bold and endlessly talented Sierra-Leonean/American filmmaker Nikyatu Jusu is working on a feature film set in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Nikyatu recently tweeted Achebe’s injunction to Africans, repeated by Adichie, to tell their own stories, and that’s what she plans to do: “make a film by the people, for the people”. Free The Town is currently looking for funding, so donate at the indiegogo campaign page if you can.
Hit play on the teaser above and check out the synopsis + links below:
FREE THE TOWN is Nikyatu Jusu’s feature film debut: As 17 year old Binta runs from a past riddled with accusations, she collides with two strangers: a Brooklyn teen reuniting with his estranged African father, and a European filmmaker relentlessly pursuing a story of African witch exorcisms. In a country struggling to progress, we discover the past often has an unshakeable grasp on the future.”
