A cellmate of disgrace R&B legend, R. Kelly, has created a comic book depicting his day-to-day life in jail together with the singer.
Brendan Hunt, a man convicted for threatening to kill government officials following the January 6 riots at the US Capitol, filed his artistry as part of his request to be released for time-served.
According to Daily Mail, Hunt served time with Kelly back in June at the Metropolitan Detention Centre and used his experience with the musician to draw the pair discussing music, life, and even doing yoga.
The 37-year-old is reported to have submitted the drawings to the Brooklyn Federal Court ahead of his November 22 sentencing.

The drawings showed the two discussing music, with Hunt claiming to have never heard of the singer and his music, with Kelly claiming to be the greatest R&B star in human history.
Kelly also noticed Hunt was reading a yoga book, and this kicked off their workout lessons. In a few days, they have already gained huge muscle and can not wait to show off to their prison mates.
The comic strips were filed to the judge showing their client's creative ambitions and the friendships he made with some of the most "unlikely characters".
This is not the first comic made by Hunt as he detailed another of him and another prison mate named Garcia.
He was found guilty in April of asking people to kill their senators in videos posted after the riots at the Capitol and was arrested on January 19, a day before Joe Biden's inauguration.
He was later acquitted of the said charges but had also shown racist behaviour and even blamed immigrants for Donald Trump's second term loss.
Prosecutors had asked for 51 to 63 months in prison for Hunt, who claimed he is a changed man and did not mean what he said.
R. Kelly found guilty
Briefly News previously reported that after a trial in a New York court that spanned seven weeks, the Storm is Over crooner was found guilty on all charges, which portends a possible 10-year-to-life sentence.
"Today's verdict brings an end to Robert Kelly's decade-long reign of terror over many vulnerable girls, boys and young women," said Pete Fitzhugh, Special Agent in Charge for Homeland Security, CBS News reported.
There were up to 14 accusations levelled against him, 12 of which the prosecutors proved to have involved five victims, among them late singer Aaliyah and other women named Stephanie, Jerhonda Pace, Jane and Faith.
Kelly is accused of trying to bribe a government official to help him marry Aaliyah when she was aged 15.
