Who is Ced Pharaoh?

Welcome to my creative universe! I’m Ced Pharaoh, a Chicago native and I love photography have a  passion for reading; comic books, mysteries, poetry, and the boundless worlds of sci-fi and fantasy. Walter Dean Myers’ “The Legend of Tarik” sparked my journey into crafting tales of fantasy and sci-fi.

While a few of my comic book scripts are still basking in the shadows, waiting for their time in the limelight :), I try to stay creative:

  • In 2012, I took the plunge into dark fantasy and published “Watch The Shadows: darkfantasypoetry.
  • In 2015, my cyberfunk short story, “Edge Of Innocence,” found a home in “The City: A CyberFunk Anthology,” courtesy of MVMedia Publishing.
  • 2016, a verse from my Black Sci-Fi Fantasy poetry piece, “SANKOFA,” found its home in the pages of the comic book series, “SANKOFA GUARD,” published by Urban Shogun Comics.
  • Fast forward to 2021, under NKOSI MEDIA LLC, I published “The Great Force,” a comic book project, the brainchild of my son, Zion.

But, the crescendo came in 2022 with the release of my urban fantastic, urban fantasy novella, “GlyphX The Urban Mage | The Coming Of Mage.”

But there’s more – beyond visuals and words, I’ve lent my voice to numerous commercial jingles. Now, I’m stepping into the exciting realm of voice acting, driven by the same passion that defines my creative journey. My goal is to provide unparalleled service, infusing each project with a touch of magic.

From the captivating visuals of my photography to the immersive narratives in my books and the resonant tones of my voice, my creative universe is vast, and I invite you to join me as this exhilarating journey continues…
