The #DrawingWhileBlack twitter hashtag celebrates black Excellence

The online trend which sought to give black artists recognition and improve visibility of people in the creative fields attracted interest from emerging artists to the more prominent art community including input from Marvel and Disney concept artists.

19 year old Ghanaian American artist Annabelle Hayford @sparklyfawn urged others to showcase their art and the trend took off with dozens of submissions from black illustrators, cartoonists and 3D artists who weighed in on the hashtag.
