Haven't posted in awhile, I have been learning to use Illustrator but today I was feeling inspired and while working on a project for school decided to use photoshop again its been ages. This piece is about Cultural Heritage, more specifically African heritage.

If you want to understand a little bit better you can watch this video:

[link]

"Negro is a docu-series exploring Latino identity in the U.S. and abroad. Historical and present day issues of racism, colorism and social consequences of the color complex among Latinos by Dash Harris."
