Representation in all fields is important as we think about our future and how we inspire those who come after us. This is in part, what is so great about Deborah Anderson of BlkWmnAnimator.
Recently, I learned that Deborah was working on a special graphic project that featured natural hair. When I reached out to her about the impetus to start the project Deborah said:
The original premise came from the fact that a lot of people who play video games, namely guys, are aggravated by lack of representation in hairstyles when making avatars. It’s always dreads or an afro, maybe a low-cut. This is the beginning of my journey in figuring out black hair in a 3D space.
And with that, the natural hair alphabet came to life. Check it out below!
