“When I mention the scene where Michael B. Jordan’s character, Adonis, taking down her braids, which every black girl immediately died over, she notes, ‘That was not a mistake. If you look really closely there’s cocoa butter and a scarf to wrap her hair. It was a real opportunity to show young black people with nuance, and not have it be about race.’
‘I love that you get to see a black man be sensitive and vulnerable — and seeing a black woman demand those things of him. As millennial love is not women waiting at home but being just as — if not more — ambitious, and showing how it works when two people are after something.’” — Tessa Thompsonx
I can finally share this! Around Christmas, Tim Leftwich asked if I would be interested in helping out in a gift for Rooster Teeth. He wanted to make a Guess Who game based on the company and wanted me to make the portraits.
These were a total blast to do. Tim is giving them the game today so I can finally share the image!
