Junia-T | The We & We Free

Last updated on April 3rd, 2021 at 07:46 pm

In a time before blogging was my extracurricular activity of choice, I used to draw like a fiend. On break at work. Zipping around on buses between home, school and work. I’d fall asleep with pens and markers in hand as I tried to draw just a little more (my Mom has the ink-stained sheets to prove it!)

It was in one of these scribbling sessions where I first crossed paths with Junia-T.

The We & We Free—Junia-T—Street Shot

Hailing from Sauga’s southwest, Junia’s been in the rap game since before most people knew what Internet radio was. Back in 2003, after we met and exchanged info while riding the city’s notoriously unreliable Mississauga Transit #26, you’d find me with Junia and his 3-5 Playa crew in their basement sessions while sketching out the cover work for Up to Par… Da Mixtape.

Over a decade later, and the Sauga City cat’s still at it, as one of the artists performing at the free upcoming The We & We Free concert on Friday, May 9th at the Izakaya Sushi House!

All it takes is a little re-assessment of life to realize some things…

I realized this today as I took a lot of parts of my life into close inspection. Now, after shunning certain aspects of my life, I find that I really have no reason to even come on the Internet much, save chatting with people here and there. I’ve shunned posting art at sites that don’t even give responses to my work even when I go all out to reply on theirs, Neopets (it got boring for me 😕), etc. All I really do is check my email and work on LiveJournal. Life has become so… simplistic. I’m waiting for things to happen… but I guess I’ve finally realized I need to make things happen. Bugger.

Today some dude saw me drawing on the bus, and he was impressed with my combination of anime and graffiti styles. He introduced himself as part of a rap group that’s been looking for promotional artwork done, and my style would probably be perfect for their thing. He took down my number, and we’ll see if he calls!

Anyway, in new news, it’s taken seven or eight years, but I think I’ve finally come up with a premise for an online comic that I can enjoy making 😊 And how did I do this? Easy. Combine all of the separate ideas I had into one greater scheme. More details will be coming soon on this new endeavour. Maybe I can make something out of it.

That’s pretty much all that’s up for now. Hopefully, I’ll get something poppin’ sooner rather than later. Until then, I have stacks of newspapers to catch up on. *sigh* I create work for myself. But hopefully making myself better knowledged will also do something for me. Will it? WILL IT?

Anyway, that’s all for now. Peace.
