 Meet Tatiana


I stepped into the world of fantasy and imagination when my mom introduced me to comic books at a young age. It opened up my thirst for all things comic book, sci-fi, and the world of heroes and heroines. I fell in love with the X-Men and particularly Wolverine. His character drew me in because he was small, spry and unassuming but got results. Much like Wolverine I’m unassuming but am a force to be reckoned with and deliver results with badass strategy.

I’m not just an artist, but a marketing strategist. My process comes from a creative standpoint. Taking the principles of visual communication in a painting and cinematic storytelling, I create dynamic campaigns and guide my clients to be the superhero of their story.

As a painter, my career reads like a an adventure novel; Flying in AC130 gunships to create commissions for the Pentagon and the United States Air Force as an Honorary Colonel to being featured on the Tyra Banks show and working with some of the top comic book industry pros, producing the wildly popular “The Black Panel.” I’ve been blessed to work with some amazing people and brands, even building up the viral sensation, NAACP nominated Dark Girls documentary to a thriving community of engaged fans which lead to the inclusion in the Toronto International Film Festival and Oprah’s OWN network as the highest performing documentary on her network. Most recently I fulfilled a life long dream and formed an art non-profit, Road to Artdom Foundation, Inc to inspire creativity and a new generation of artists in underserved areas.

Art Imitates Life: Schwarzenegger new Zombie flick and the Simpson’s Rainier Wolfcastle

I couldn’t help but chuckle when Ain’t it Cool News reported Schwarzenegger’s latest zombie film Maggie, based on a Black List script from John Scott 3. The movie is not a comedy and I’m sure will be quite the thriller, but thanks to the living pop culture archives, my friend Drew Stepek, all I will think about is this clip from The Simpson’s Rainier... read more

The 2013 Black Panel

For the last 8 years, I have been co-producing the wildly popular San Diego Comic Con International panel, The Black Panel. Michael Davis has been the mastermind/ creator/ moderator of the panel for the last 20 years. The panel is seriously one of the most entertaining panels at Comic Con. Not only is the caliber of panel alumni a list of who’s who in entertainment and comics, it is an incredibly informative conversation with the fans. This year I moved from behind the scenes and became an official panelist. It was a huge honor to be featured with such an illustrious group of professionals, especially considering The Black Panel was the first panel I ever saw at Comic Con. If that isn’t a testament to the power of networking at Comic Con, I don’t know what is! Below you can enjoy footage of the whole panel. Sit back relax and be prepared to be entertained as I speak about my role in the film Dark Girls, the upcoming Milestones: African Americans in Comics, Pop Culture and Beyond, and being a woman/ minority in the entertainment industry. This year’s panel once again brings together movers and shakers from a variety of entertainment mediums: Wayne Brady (The Wayne Brady Show, Let’s Make a Deal, The Chappelle Show), Orlando Jones (Sleepy Hollow, Tainted Love, Black Dynamite), Tatiana El-Khouri (Dark Girls, The Milestones Show), John Jenning (BLACK COMIX, Octavia Butler’s Kindred), Tony Rich (The Tony Rich Project, The Hidden Beach), and David Walker (Bad Azz MoFo, Super Justice Force). Moderated by Michael Davis. For more information about the Black Panel... read more
