For the next two weeks, I’m looking at two talented young creatives in the DMV area. First up: animator Tynesha Foreman. When she described herself to me as someone “with a proclivity for the grotesque,” I knew I had to look into her work and bring on the show!
Our conversation began by going into some of her current work at The Atlantic, and she talked about how she approaches new projects and where her love for animation began. Tynesha also spoke a bit about diversity in animation, some of her inspirations and influences, and where she wants to be career-wise in the next few years. Tynesha has such a unique and powerful visual style, so I think we’ll definitely see more from her for years to come!

Darhil Crooks is the creative director for The Atlantic. He oversees the art direction of the magazine across print, online, and on mobile and tablet devices. His work has literally graced the covers of some the world’s most popular magazines, including Esquire, Ebony, and The Source.
Our conversation…wow…where to begin? Darhil walked me through a typical day for him at the magazine and we discussed what makes a good magazine cover as well as some of his older work. From there, he spoke on his time at SVA, the fundamentals to his success, the people who inspire him, and what he’s got in store for the future. I’m so glad to be able to share this conversation with you, so sit back and enjoy!
