First generation Ghanaian American artist, animator and illustrator Annabelle H @sparklyfawn initiated the hashtag #DrawingWhileBlack that lasted from Friday, September 15th to Sunday Spetember 17th celebrating Black Artists.

The rules were simple:

  • Be Black.
  • Be an artist.
  • Post 2-4 examples of your work.
  • Include a brief bio in your post.
  • Use the Hastag #DrawingWhileBlack on any social media platform.
  • Have fun.

We have had fun converging a handful of these amazing art pieces. We appreciate and encourage artists to continue to be unrelenting in their pursuits as they create magical work.
