Black Nymph Art (https://reedsy.com/black-nymph-art), officially began as a creative team in Cuba, in 2015. On that date, they began with two stories conceived for the Webtoons platform, but due to the limitations that existed at that time in Cuba, mainly when it came to monetizing the work, the projects could not continue, being saved for the future. Although Black Nymph Art stayed as a brand.
Since then, the team members have worked independently, joining occasionally to participate in events and contests, obtaining various national awards and recognitions, in the comic and illustration category.
Currently, with extensive experience in fields such as editorial design, graphic design, illustration, concept art and of course; comic, the team joins stronger, incorporating new members and various projects, some new and others taken over, with the aim of launching them in a campaign on the crowd funding platform indiegogo.com.

In comics professionally four years, but really all my life. I'm a full time illustrator. At Zebra Comics (https://zebracomicsinc.com/) I have my own staff, from Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Cameroon, US and France. Our comics are published in English and French.
My first comic was Batman. In fact it remains my favorite comic, next to the ones I create. For Batman I was really interested in the character. I came to understand about myself that I wanted to tell my own stories as amazing as those from Marvel and DC.
It’s inevitable comic creators use technology. In the near future tech will play a greater role in distributing comics.
