About

My name is Troy, but people who follow my art call me Mayor TBone (@mayortbone on Instagram & Twitter). As a kid I grew up watching cartoons so much, I thought myself how to draw. I fell in love with anime at a very young age & it’s my favorite style to draw. I am also a visual designer, animator, tattoo artist, graffiti artist & I do a little sculpting from time to time & I’m also a dad.

As a kid, I always wanted super powers but nothing that crazy has happened, so I gave myself some & so TBone the villain was born. @tbone_the_villain on Instagram is where I first started showing TBone to others to see if people could love villains as I do. You cant have a good hero without a great villain & the best villains think they’re doing a good deed. It’s really just someone’s point of view versus another & that’s the main idea behind TBone being called a villain instead of a hero. I want to show that the line between good & evil is not so cut & dry, that good people sometimes do bad things & people who you think are the most uplifting are the most sinister, almost like in real life.

I have this dream of TBone on late night tv or the big screen & I think it can happen. I made marijuana one of the focal points in the book because I see where the marijuana industry is going & I want to bring even more awareness to it. Marijuana may be a drug but it can help people too, unlike alcohol which is legal & kills way more people than weed does every year. With channels like Viceland, Nat Geo, Adultswim & others giving marijuana the platform to show it’s not as harmful as other drugs & the states where it is legal have created more jobs & are striving even more because of it. It’s a billion dollar industry & I want TBone to be a part of it.

Tbone has become more than just a hobby to me, I want to see how big this can get. I am thankful for the little fan base I have already from TBone being on Instagram & I know after this book 1 drops, I’ll make even more noise about the villain. If you like to see my updates or my process, follow @mayortbone on Instagram to see if my dream comes alive.

I have a lot of the book done, so to give you guys a taste of what your getting, I'm going to release the first 10 pages of TBone the Villain on FEBRUARY 15 & release another 10 pages once I get to 50%. The book has more than 100 pages, so it will make you want to know what happens next.

Risks and challenges

I don’t see any challenges ahead honestly. I’m almost done with coloring my pages & have been working on the story when I’m not drawing my final few pages. But if I have to say something then I guess it’s the promotion of my book, I want people to hear my story & drawing, coloring & writing takes up most of my time.
