Native and comic book inspired portrait of Mae Jemison by award-winning Native American Artist & Writer from the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe, Jeffrey Veregge
“Didn’t Buy It” (Mae Jemison) by Jeffrey Veregge

“The difference between science and the arts is not that they are different sides of the same coin even, or even different parts of the same continuum, but rather, they are manifestations of the same thing. The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity.” ~ Mae Jemison

“For thousand of years Native and Non-Native storytellers have used art as a means to share the tales of their people. For me I am carrying on a tradition that started with my ancestors by simply using the means of today and all it’s modern conveniences to share the tales that I love.

Art evolves, tools get better, but the essence of what I do
is the same as those who did it on the canvases nature provided for them to tell the stories of gods and heroes long, long ago.” ~ Jeffrey Veregge
