Not a minor youtuber / internet celebrity, but can I suggest warning people away from the company Illamasque? They did blackface for an ad back in 2012, and gave a half assed ‘it’s totally not about that tho!!!’ apology.
And before anyone agrees with the ‘apology’, keep in mind blackface is top hat, articifically blackened skin tone, exagerated large red lips, and usually a suit or other costume. You would think somewhere along the way someone would speak up against it before publishing the photos.
“I’m so glad KyoAni decided to animate A Silent Voice. They are the best
company for a story like that. They can really portray a lot of emotions
through their animation and soundtracks. I’m so excited!”
It’s done, guys. Raúl Esparza as our Bobby Baby ❤️❤️❤️ I decided against colouring because I think b&w suits this character more and brings more depth into the drawing.
Thank you so much for all your lovely reactions and the tons of messages I got, when I posted the sketch. You really warmed my heart and I hope I can warm yours with this little drawing. 💋❤️
My tribute to Raúl Esparza in Company. ❤️❤️❤️ I wanna thank my friends from this fandom SO MUCH for introducing me to this musical and for all the inspiration I get talking to you every day!! Step by step I’m getting deeper into this fandom and it’s my greatest pleasure to give you something back.
Special thank goes to @skittle479. I love you, dear! 😘
Now I’m gonna finish the new Barba drawing. That one’s a real challenge as well!! 😄
I can’t wait to show you the new Barba drawing (which looks actually quite good so far!) and the sketch of Raúl in Tick Tick Boom! - Yes, that’s gonna be my next one! 😉 Stay tuned, friends. I just LOVE to draw for you! ❤️😘
To ‘blame’ for this upcoming drawing: @skittle479 @sackoflemons (tumblr doesn’t let me tag you) and @all-things-raul-esparza!! 😄 Thank you, guys for inspiring me. ❤️ Now I’m officially hooked lol.
I’m also going to work on another Barba drawing. It’s a pleasure to draw for you! 😘❤️
