Eshu Bumpus

Eshu Bumpus is a storyteller who tells African, African-American, and World stories to a variety of groups. Here's a video of him.

His grand boubou or bubu was a fun costume to sketch. I liked the big pipe folds on the back and the half-lock folks on the right.

I knew Eshu Bumpus back at Hampshire College in the 70s and/or80s (my memory timeline is a bit unclear). He was a positive, powerful and peaceful presence then, and clearly now as well.
