It is my goal to feature amazing black girl artists (as I like to call them), from time to time. I find that we are thoroughly under represented in the art world, and that we have to work too hard to get the recognition that we deserve.

I found this artist named, Toyin Odutola, randomly. She's Nigerian like my home girl, who just happens to share the same name. Her work is phenomenal and her drawings are exotic and powerful. There are so many adjectives that I could use to describe the depth of her drawings, but one has to see them and make their own judgments. It's only fair that each person be allowed to interpret the art in their own way.

Her work is very different from mine. She uses pen and ink and the occasional graphite or charcoal, but more that anything, it's her creative style that is beautiful and inspiring. Check out more of her work here.
