At least once a month, someone asks me if I know any “Black women artists” and I’m always dumbfounded by the question because there are SO MANY! So, I’ve created this list as a reference (and as a source that I can send to the next person who asks me that question). All of the Black women on this list are either comic book creators, cover artists, concept artists or have contributed art to animation.
Julie Anderson @aretofjuliea
Trudi Ann Hemans @tearoseillustration
Shauna Mills @boomtagx
Ashley A. Woods @ninjatrip
Micheline Hess @michmasharts
Vashti Harrison @vashtiharrison
Abelle Hayford @abellehayford
(Edit 3/7/2020 – This artist actually identifies as non-binary, which I did not know when this list was created. My apologies)
Here are some more black artists to follow @plasticbottru and @hiashleynine and @onyinyeda and @sainasix and @asieybarbie (All of these are their twitter handles and could possibly also be their IG handles as well)
