- Khalil, Inspiring Illustrator -
The voice, the face, the name, Oh Khalil! Khalil became a local sensation when the video of him solving the Rubik's cube at only three years old went viral. He is known as the “boy genius” ( Thanks to WKYC-Cleveland) three-year-old boy who solved the Rubik's Cube.
Khalil is inquisitive and charismatic a school ager. He inspires me to be a comic book writer and illustrator. He enjoys reading, science, and of course, drawing. If he’s not playing Roblox or eating pizza, he’s somewhere explaining the meaning of a word you’ve probably never heard.
