    By Kitty Y. Williams Originally from Washington, D.C., independent Filmmaker DeWayne Etheridge currently resides in Charlotte, N.C. where he is living out his dreams of Writing, Directing and Producing several independent movies. His journey in filmmaking began after he graduated from high school in 1999 and reached a crossroads in trying to determine what do with his life. “I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do career wise after finishing school, but I always loved to write stories and watch movies when I was younger. I decided initially to become a music video Director but that was short lived.” Etheridge then made the decision to take his love of writing stories and movies into a career and enrolled in classes at a local cable access channel called CTV in 2002.

    - As seen in the Oct/Dec 2012 issue of The Indiegator, Pages 46-50. Official Site │ Facebook │ Twitter │ Airbrush Portfolio │ AirbrushKing Fashion  Weight Loss by Kitty Y. Williams Almost like yesterday, I remember 6 years ago I was doing Videography and dating a Photographer at the time who had arranged a meeting with a local airbrush Artist for a backdrop he needed. We were preparing to shoot an out of town concert in Louisiana that featured Indie Musicians as well. The 3 of us met up at a Starbucks on the corner of Fountainview and Westheimer Rd in Houston to go over the details for the backdrop. That was my first time ever setting foot in a Starbucks; it was a cozy little spot. The Airbrush Artist, DeAngelo Ellis, a handsome, creative and enthusiastic young man who loved the Arts and strongly believed in his abilities, impressed me. After the meeting we all went to his car and marveled at the amazing portfolio as he shared with us big plans for his creative

  • Meet the Artist: Fitz Roy G.

    - As seen in the July/Sep 2012 issue of The Indiegator, Page 1. by Kitty Y. Williams Several people have been asking me about the sexy avatar on the cover of the first two issues of The Indiegator magazine. Her name is “Kitty the Indiegator” and she was designed for me by my long time friend, New York native Fitz Roy G. who currently resides in Houston, TX. Years ago Fitz mentioned to me his desire to draw comics and I used to get so excited when he would show me his portfolio with all the characters he’s drawn and is trying to develop for his future comic books. I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I already knew he was a talented Musician, but I had no idea he was also talented in this line of art too. To my knowledge, I had never before known anyone personally who drew like that. His coloring skills are so amazing and real! My father draws very well and I used to, or could if that’s where I wanted to focus, so I really respect the art of being able to create
