"Beyond the Box" explores the comic book world, where imagination becomes a visual reality and creative, out of the box concepts exist. A diverse mix of sketches, inked drawings and paintings create a unique journey into Cordy’s popular City Earth series and upcoming 2021 Bass Reeves comic book release. One of his most powerful acrylic paintings, part of a developing series reflecting on real historical events in America is also on debut.
A Portsmouth, VA native, Cordy knew at an early age he was destined to live a creative life. He earned an undergraduate degree and MFA from Norfolk State University then became an NSU Art Educator. Cordy is currently an Adjunct Professor of Media & Fine Arts at Regent University and an Art Instructor at the Art Institute.
