Hobo Radio Interview – Jonathan Davenport, co-creator of Our Heroes Rock

When Jonathan Davenport responded to an online post looking for a graphic artist to design characters for an upcoming project, he had no way of knowing that the poster was Xavier Woods and that the project would lead to Davenport designing ring gear for the New Day and other WWE wrestlers.

After George Floyd was killed by police last summer, Davenport and New Day wanted to design ring gear depicting heroes of black history. From there, Davenport and Big E teamed up with Andreas Hale to create Our Heroes Rock, an animated show that uses hip hop and science fiction to teach kids about black history.

We talked to Davenport about the Kickstarter campaign for Our Heroes Rock, designing ring gear for the New Day and how hard it is not to geek out and ask a million questions when texting pro wrestlers.
