John Jennings Art Talk John Jennings is a Media and Culture Studies professor at the University of California at Riverside. He is also an awesome comic book creator that focuses on creating black comic book characters in a science fiction realm. I was chosen to create the flyers for his lecture at BGSU. My design for this poster was inspired by many elements of his work. I wanted to integrate his use of black characters with a Sci-Fi appearance and make them work digitally while adding a touch of my own personal style and technique.
