Erika Alexander said:

“We are so honored and proud to have been asked to participate in this program featuring the groundbreaking Blokhedz series and its creators Mike and Mark Davis.  That The Hutchins Center at Harvard is recognizing their work combining music, animation, and storytelling in a world of color is a testament to their imaginations and to their vision.”

“Blokhedz is not only ambitious and genre-bending,” said Puryear, “It’s also a lot of fun.  Like Hip-Hop itself, it’s not just meant to be admired, it’s meant to be danced to.  Seeing the Davis’s work at Harvard is a tremendous validation for comic creators of color like us, and we couldn’t be happier to support and honor them there.”

“Blokhedz; Music, Magic, & Mayhem” is an interactive exhibit featuring art,animation, and urban vinyl figures based on the graphic novel. Blokhedz fusesAmerican graffiti with Japanese anime aesthetics and draws from a world thatseamlessly blends sci-fi with magic and draws from traditional African, Afro-Latin and African diasporic spritual mysticism, Hiphop and science fiction.
