INTERNING W/ HEBRU BRANTLEY
September 21, 2019
Hebru Brantley is a multi-disciplined artist who uses his characters "FlyBoy" & "Lil Mama" as a vehicle to drive his narrative on diversity and inclusion of people of color in the arts, his creativity and work ethic has attracted brands and figures likes Hublot, BAPE, Jay-Z, Pharrell, and Chance the Rapper to name a few.
Courtesy of Kendall Hurns (Merchandise Director), Stewart gained an opportunity to intern under Hurns with Hebru Brand Studios during his senior year at Cornell College where he mentored him on effective networking and managing brand equity.
Aside from mentorship, Stewart took on the role of a Product Development intern and assisted with Hebru's Nevermore Park art experience. From breaking down Hebru's figurines for a deconstructive aesthetic to occasional merchandising, Stewart gained an inclusive experience within the realm of Hip-Hop in Chicago.
