THE CHEYENNEKIMORA GIRL.
Being a child of the 90s, I remember Saturday morning’s being the most lit days ever. My mom would make the best breakfast, and I would just watch endless cartons on nickelodeon such as Hey Arnold, Rocko’s Modern Life, and Rugrats. One thing I did question, was the lack of black cartoons in the industry. With a plethora of different skin tones, and features why were Suzie Carmichael, and Gerald the only ones that spoke for the culture. So, moving forward to present day, I hit up photographer, and graphic designer @Nigeleli0tt the convo went like this:
Me: Bro you know how to draw.
Nigel: My major is in graphic design, of course, I know how to draw (sends all of his works)
Me: dope. I want you to turn me into an Anime Character.
Nigel: … Ok
Me: How dope would it be to see a black female anime character, one with the same features as me, that I could relate too, one for the culture.
Nigel: say no more.
