1001 Black Men–#371

Last week it seemed that everywhere I looked I saw a brother with lots of hair. This week my eye has been drawn to Black men wearing suits. It all started on Saturday night. A friend hooked me up with excellent seats at the Andre Ward vs. Chad Dawson fight (at Oracle Arena). The audience was almost as much fun to watch as the fight itself. A lot of the folks in attendance were dressed to impress. Women were wobbling up and down the bleachers in outrageously high heels and men were styling and profiling in suits and ties that ranged from tasteful and understated to outrageous and excessive. Since that night I’ve had suits on the brain, and the next several drawings are composites of the men in suits I’ve spotted over the last several days.

  1. Hi, Ajuan! I met you at SF Zinefest- I’m the children’s librarian at the Eastmont Library. We spoke about hanging some of your artwork at Eastmont. Our last artist just picked up his work, so we currently have wall space available; I spoke to my branch manager and we would both love to invite you to hang your work. If you’re still interested, contact me here or at amartin@oaklandlibrary.org, and we’ll make plans. 🙂
