There's no shortage of white kudos so the color of the artist is not trivial 

But her drawings are good, seemingly authentic

Interesting perspective

I think it matters to some people too... just like the reverse does. I remember Kara Walker's art being posted and the question arising if anyone would feel differently if the artist hadn't been Black and many people admitted they would

Plus...the question will always be is this true appreciation or another case of whitey making money off our image. That said I do like the first pics.




Indeed Alias.  There are sometimes even I don't know what to think when I see white artist use black subjects.  I wish that this type of thing didn't have to be a question in the back of my mind. 

Can a black artist get just a much kudos if her subjects were white folks in their traditional Clan dress... Irish, Scottish, Dutch etc?   Or would we side eye her and mark her as a possible coon?

It appears she has an appreciation for black women. So I can't fault her for that, we are some beautiful creatures.

She talented regardless of her race.
