JCJB (Anamnesis, PhantaNoir) - I create worlds that reflect our current society through a fantastical lens. I am a storyteller that engages with different forms of escapist media such as, animations, speculative fiction, video games, and graphic novels, and deal with creating different forms of representation within them in terms of race, gender, and sexuality. My work stems from a personal need to see myself and others represented positively in a fun and engaging way.
My current project delves into the realm of black fantasy, siphoning off of the influence of Afrofuturism. I am working with a new term I developed: PhantaNoir, to explore fantasy through black protagonists in a variety of mediums. jc-jb.com
