Antoine Mitchell is a freelance graphic artist from Baton Rouge, by the way of Norwood, Louisiana. He has toured many libraries throughout East Baton Rouge Parish, participated in local art exhibitions as well as exhibitions in New Orleans. Antoine specializes in both traditional digital art mediums.
He is the lead illustrator at the Jozef Syndicate and visual creator for two children’s books, Summer Saves Summer by Adara Gaston and The Great One by barbara w. green.
Antoine has been in love with comic books since the age of five when he discovered the comic stash left at his grandmother’s house by one of his uncles. This, as well as cartoons of the time, played a huge part in him picking up a pencil to draw. He officially would start collecting comic books at the age of 11 and this would also begin his journey of being a comic book Artist.
In December of 1999, inspired by the hit role-playing video game, Final Fantasy, Antoine would lay the early foundation of what would become his “Afro-Fantasy” comic book “Sankofa’s Eymbrace.” 19 years later, Antoine finally released what he calls his most important Art piece ever to the world of not only comic book and fantasy lovers, but also to those who have never picked up a comic book in their lives. Although his specific audience for Sankofa’s Eymbrace are people of color, Antoine sees Sankofa’s Eymbrace reaching all audiences.
