My original goal for this art project was to complete 1001 drawings of Black men in 1001 days. Today, I finally reached the halfway point. My goal is to complete the project by the end of December 2013.
For drawings #500 and #501, I’ve created images that speak to my goal of depict the diversity of the Black men, with a particular interest in depicting those African American demographics who popular media representations of tend to overlook.
It’s been a real pleasure creating these images, and I’ve learned a lot from the process. I have some ideas about where I’d like to go with my second 500 drawings, and I’ll speak about that more in the coming days.
For now, though, I thank you for looking at my site and I hope you’ll return again and again. I’ll be posting several new drawings each week and I welcome your feedback and suggestions.
