An amazing illustrator named Ed Watson made an awesome illustration of the comic characters Chenoa (Ice Witch) & Bevy (Electron) in the midst of heated battle. The two characters in the illustration are the creations of talented writer and friend to SugarCayne.com Regine Sawyer of Lockett Down Productions! I saw this illustration on the Black Comix Creators Facebook event page which has a ton of amazing illustrations on it. Find out more about Ice Witch, Electron and Regine Sawyer on LockettDown.com
BIKE OF THE DAY: $7500 Daylight Arc C-1 BMX Racing Complete
BMX racer Josh Wright just finished a sick custom build of the popular Daylight Arc C-1 then He posted photos of it on Facebook and broke the BMX internet!!
The Daylight Arc C-1 is one of the most exotic, hi end aluminum BMX racing frames on the market and Josh spared no expense with the parts that he put on it.

This has been a crazy build. Lots of stress but couldn’t be happier. This is almost double my most expensive build to date and took way longer than I had hoped but hope you enjoy looking at her and if you catch me at the track and want to take a lap on a beast let me know.

Super Natural Woman Issue #1 Variant Cover by Marcus Williams
Marcus Williams AKA Marcus The Visual recently finished a really awesome variant cover for his comic The Super Natural Woman Issue #1.
About The Super Natural Woman:
“Who is Super Natural? Super Natural is a superhero character I created to be used as a supporting pivotal character in Anthony Piper’s superhero parody entitled “Trill League“. In the world Anthony created, she sticks out like a sore thumb in comparison to the other character’s personalities. This was intentional as she is designed to be a vehicle of “pseudo normality” that readers can anchor to when things get too crazy. Her name refers to her moral stance against portraying herself as anything but a natural black woman. This includes her appearance, her diet and her lifestyle. Super Natural is not from earth, yet she has come to make a home here after some quick transitions into city life. She is immensely powerful and nearly invulnerable to all physical damage, but not immune to the everyday stresses of living in American society. Book One of Super Natural will be a comic book origin story of sorts that finally explains who she is and what’s she’s about.” ~Marcus Williams
We love everything about this powerful image and concept and can’t wait till this series is finally released!
You can get some awesome exclusive illustration from Marcus Williams at the Black Comic Book Festival this weekend (Jan 12-13th) at the Schomburg Center in Harlem. Get there early it’s gonna be off the hook!
Jordan Brand x Levi’s® Denim Air Jordan 4 & Trucker Jacket Collaboration
The folks at Jordan Brand and Levi’s® recently released some info about their collaboration on the Air Jordan 4 and reversible trucker jacket. The Air Jordan 4 features Levi’s® standard denim style to its upper and reverse denim to the insole and inner lining. There’s also some reverse denim on a little part of the side panels the kicks. The Levi’s® patch is incorporated on the tongue of the sneaker with the Jordan brand hangtag. All this denim dopeness sits on top of a white/red/gum-colored outsole. The mid sole is a mix of white, gum, denim and and red. The laces are done in a matching Denim colorway and the stitching on the kicks are done in gold.
The Reversible Trucker Jacket is inspired by the classic Flight Suit and of course Levi’s worn denim style. On the jacket’s underarm panels you’ll see the Flight Suit material in red which is why we saw the red colorway on the sneakers. It’s all about that color coordination!! 😉 The back of the jacket features a lightly distressed, subliminal Flight logo. Whe the jacket is reversed you get the black Flight Suit which features denim on the collar. On the back a flashy, red Jumpman logo is added with co-branded shank buttons and levi’s paper patches. We really like this collaboration, let us know what you think in comment section below!
The Jordan Brand x Levi’s® Air Jordan 4 and reversible Trucker Jacket will drop officially on January 17 at select retailers. Find out which stores will be stocking them on Hypebeast.com
