Man POWER Monday – Jon Moody has “artistic and athletic” swag

It is “Man POWER Monday”!!! For those of you that know me, you know I hate reality tv! But, periodically, I reluctantly get sucked in for the sake of being “open-minded”. Boy am I happy that I got sucked into the reality series Southern Charm New Orleans.  This is how I was introduced to artist and athlete Jon Moody, my “Man POWER Monday” selection for this week. I am totally digging his “athletic and artistic swag”. Aye, caramba! 🙂


Jon Moody is an amazing young artist hailing from NOLA (a place that has become near and dear to me since my “mecation”). A graduate of the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), Moody went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Effects and a Master of Arts in Painting from the Savannah College of Art & Design. Socially conscious, Jon Moody prides himself on creating images that provoke thought. And that, they do.

Jon Moody the athlete

His grit, determination, and sheer talent has led to Moody’s work being commissioned by many. If you are an Empire fan you have definitely seen his work on the show. Co-creator Lee Daniels is a huge fan.

Recognizing the impact his work has had on the community-at-large as we face various social, political, cultural, and personal issues, Jon Moody’s art has also been recognized by Joe Biden and featured in the White House (I’m not sure if it is still there since Donald Trump came on the scene).
