Hello I'm Stephane Metayer,
I'm an Artist/Writer based in Queens, New York and the creator of "Tephlon Funk!", a project I'm currently working on.
I first came up with "Tephlon Funk!" back in 2004 while still in high school. It's about a 14 year old girl from Queensbridge named Inez Jozlyn who meets someone that turns her life upside down.
The words "Tephlon Funk!" mean to be strong and stand out. I'm putting together the graphic novel with Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey. We're looking to release it sometime this year and hope to eventually turn this into an animated series.
It's like a mix between "Cowboy Bebop" & "The Boondocks," and it's heavily inspired by '90s rap; specifically Nas' 1994 classic "Illmatic" which inspired me to create "Tephlon Funk!"
I'm also getting help from other artists as well, including David Tako & Adam Temple. Last year, I realized that this was something so big that I could no longer do this on my own.
"Tephlon Funk!" is unlike anything out there. It's a great story that I hold very near and dear to me. If you'd like to know more about "Tephlon Funk!" checkout tephlonfunk.com along with our social media sites (see links below) for any/all updates related to TF. Enjoy!
