Art Focus Host Andre Middleton interviews Comic Artist Steven Christian

Steven Christian is a visual artist living in the Portland, Oregon, and is the sole-creator of the Eyeland of Iltopia. Born and raised in Sacramento, CA, he grew up playing sports his whole life. Mainly football, basketball, and baseball. he was fortunate enough to excel in football and earn a scholarship at the University of Hawaii. During his college career, he injured my hips and had to get hip surgery. It was then that he began to explore art and comics. It became an avenue of self-expression as well as therapy.  Jump to 3 years later, he hung up the cleats, received his Master of Arts from Oregon State University, and is studying for medical school at Portland State University. In hopes of reinventing himself as a visual artist, he aims to create a body of work that inspires creativity in the African American Community.
