My name is Jiba Molei Anderson.
During my career as a professional in the creative fields, I’ve walked the corporate route working as a production artist, graphic designer and art director for companies such as DraftFCB, KBA Marketing, Manga Entertainment, Ryan Partnership, Universal Music Group, Cedar Grove Books, and Landmark Sign Group.
I have also been employed as a graphic designer, animator, art director and graphic novelist for educational institutions such as the University of Illinois - Chicago, the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and the Chicago Academy of Music.
In 1999, I started working for Griot Enterprises, a publishing company / visual communication studio and created its flagship property, The Horsemen. The first Horsemen volume, Divine Intervention was released in 2002 to critical acclaim with The Horsemen: The Book of Olorun released in 2009. I’ve also written the educational text Manifesto: The Tao of Jiba Molei Anderson, which focuses on the creation of comics and maintain The Afrosoul Chronicles, a blog about comics, pop culture, politics and race.
Through Griot Enterprises, I have had numerous one-man and group shows, art directed and published over 10 books and have been invited to speak about my work and the representation of race and culture at various institutions including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Ohio State University. In fact, The Horsemen: Divine Intervention and the anthology 4 Pages 16 Bars: A Visual Mixtape are used as textbooks for classes at OSU.
In my career as an educator, I’ve been an Assistant Professor at the Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg, an Adjunct Faculty at Sanford Brown University and a Visiting Professor at DeVry University teaching courses in animation, multimedia, graphic design and video game design.
Currently, I am employed as a Part – Time Lecturer at Chicago State University and a Teaching Artist at Ravenswood Academy through the CCAP program at Columbia College Chicago.
Please take a look at my online portfolio at your earliest convenience. I would like to continue sharing this vision with your company and the world at large.
