As one half of the BOSC(Brothers Of Spontaneous Combustion), Willie J Smith aka Suicidal Assassin, is the illustrator and co-writer/creator of the web comic known as BLACKGUARD. Residing in Savannah, GA, where he studied sequential art at the Savannah College Of Art and Design for two years, the Suicidal one not only honed his craft on the bristol board, but also embraced the local underground hip hop culture. In fact, while not drawing comics, he can be found on a local stage performing as Righteous The Poet with local Savannah hip hop group, Dope Sandwich. The hip hop culture, which he loves so much, can easily be seen in his somewhat graffiti inspired style of art. Go ahead, take a look at the gallery of the Suicidal one....it's to die for.
