Jordan Lockett: Cartoonist Emergent

Twenty-one-year-old Jordan Lockett creates stories that are relatable to any reader, but what’s distinctive about his tales is they contain only a handful of words – as is the skill of a cartoonist. “I’ve been drawing my whole life,” said Lockett. “I’ve always considered myself an illustrator.” These days, however, Lockett is chiseling his skills […]
