Finally, “Dirty Brown”, my comic creation is out !!

Dirty Brown COVERFinally, my character “D.J. Dirty Brown” has the place she deserves! When Dirty first entered my mind, I imagined her as the star of a rock opera, but then I decided she would be much better as the heroine of a feature film, which later changed into an animated series. It was only this past year that I realized she was meant to be the main character of a comic book series.

Dirty brown is everything a comic figure should be! She is a beautiful woman of mixed race (African-American/Caucasian) in her early twenties, who is one of the hottest DJs in town. She is sexy, sharp and bursting with charisma – a club queen who drives around the city in a cement truck she has modified to serve as both home and recording studio. Yes, she is really cool!

She has a magical green stone, Dirty’s inspiration, tattooed on her chest. At first, Dirty does not know that the stone, given to her by a black trumpet player, has been imbued by a shaman with jungle sounds and African rhythms as part of a plan to preserve African musical heritage.

When the stone is stolen by Dirty’s ex-boyfriend, the villainous DoeJoe, Dirty begins to lose her confidence and talent as a DJ.

In this comic series, we set out on a heart-stopping, extraordinary race between Dirty and DoeJoe for the purification of the stone and control of the world’s sounds. The pursuit takes us to the club scene in urban America, a college campus, the African continent and even to prison. Along the way we get to know Dirty’s gang: Schuster, a geeky geology graduate student, who becomes Dirty’s lover; her best friend Margaret, who is in love with Mitch the Android; Q, Dirty’s quick-witted, lazy and double-crossing assistant; Dr. Mendlebaum, a music therapist; and Myday, a noble African shaman.

 

What I like about Dirty Brown’s story is that it has elements of drama and mystery, a strong element of contemporary dance club music, African folklore, magic, sex and a lot of humor. In fact, I remember laughing a lot while working on it. I also find Dirty’s journey interesting because in the beginning she is totally alienated to her African roots, but as the series progresses, she gets closer and closer to her roots, and then she realizes her true inner powers. She embraces her authenticity, and this is what you need to be happy and to really succeed.

So, are you ready to join Dirty Brown in her journey? Be sure to check it out on comiXology. http://cmxl.gy/1znBWYy

About Tammy Brown Elkeles

I was born in Nigeria, but my family moved to Israel when I was eight years old. I live in Tel Aviv with my husband Miki, a photographer and documentary director, and our two boys. Writing children’s books has been my passion ever since I became a mother. Children are an endless source of inspiration and joy, and they can teach us adults so much about life. I believe that our children are our true spiritual guides. Being a staunch optimist, I believe that we have the power to influence reality and shape our own lives, and that is the message I wish to convey through my writing.In fact, I remember writing my first children’s stories when I was a little girl. But life led me down a different path. I graduated with a BA in chemistry and nutritional biochemistry and later studied advertising as well as interior design. It was only in my thirties that I got to realize my childhood dream, studying playwriting and screenwriting and making writing my main focus.In recent years I have been involved in filmmaking, serving as assistant director for the documentary Cinema Egypt, assistant editor for a documentary on a rap group, and writer of a documentary for National Geographic. My first play, Dust, was performed in 2009, and I have completed a script for a children’s feature film.I currently have seven children’s books available on Kindle, and there are more to come. My book The Birds’ Bakery will soon appear in print nationwide. I’m also working on a comic books series for teenagers, D.J. Dirty Brown, to be published on Kindle.Your thoughts and comments are important to me. Please write to tammy@tammybrownelkeles.com
