Ron Bryant, the creator of Cutnedge Cartoons, began his vivid and unique artwork for a multitude for prominent African American newspapers across the country in the late 1980’s. Ron displayed talent as a singer at the local school and talent search in his birthplace of North Carolina. His brother went to art school and encouraged Ron to revisit his artistic side and pursue that as a careerbecause he saw he was very talented. In 1988 after serving for the US Armed Forces, while living in ATL, he took his brother's advice and returned to his work as an artist and joined the Atl constitution as their freelance artist. With news content becoming available in real time and free on computers and mobile devices, the impact caused many papers and magazines to reduce staff (including their artists) as papers sales lagged. This caused a shift in his art career and focus but he continued to pursue his love of drawing stories , commentaries and uplifting messages as an artist. His work has been published in a number of venues including: The Atlanta Voice, UpScale Magazine, Daytona Times, The Observer Group newspaper, Winston Salem Times, The Chronicle, the Westside Weekly, The Toledo Journal, The Spokane and Black America Web.com (Tom Joyner's website). Mr Bryant has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood during his career.
He became involved in a number of projects including logos and artwork for the American Cancer Society “Captain LUNO." Eventually he became his own syndicated artist for over 75 African American newspapers across the county. Political and social issues were his primary focus as he felt a sense of urgency to help the Black community understand the many ways the racial divide can be resolved as well as identified in our community. Some viewed his work as controversial because he unlocks the hidden truth that affects African Americans. From a heart of conviction from his personal experience as well as observations of limited opportunities afforded his community he exposed the truth about society’s intentional targeted destruction and negative portrayal of black men and boys.
In 2013 he wanted to encourage the American family through the matriarch of the American family. He felt the wisdom and experiences of the elderly could teach the new generation how to deal with life's daily issues. His most recent strip encourages a stronger relationship with the elderly. He knows that prayer, wisdom, and the love shared from the grandmother would help this new generation escape the dramatic effects of bullying,help build ethnic pride and much more. This inspired him to create a character affectionately called "GG"which stands for 'great granny' Cut-N-Edge Cartoons has over 103, 000 fans on Facebook, thousands of followers on Google, twitter, intragram and his blog.
