A lot of artist like to add their touch to famous characters, movies, music, Tv shows. There are many ways to recreate something. If we don’t like what we’re seeing, we’re going to change it according to our liking.
Recently, an artist who shared his reimagined famous characters is Tyron Handy. Tyron decided to change the skin color of well known characters. His work raises awareness on black people’s representation in cartoons and TV shows.
If you think about it, you won’t be able to find any famous cartoon or Tv show where the main character is black. Mostly they are not featured at all. Even if they are, they usually represent the best friend of the main character or always play a secondary act.
