Artist Reimagines Popular Cartoons With Black Characters And The Result Are Amazing

If you are a fan of movies and TV shows, you may notice that black people are grossly underrepresented in virtually every form of media. Illustrator Tyron Handy has reimagined many popular cartoons with black characters because he wants to change that.

Tyron Handy is a Philadelphia-based comic artist and children’s book illustrator. Handy has shared his paintings of iconic cartoons characters as black. Most of his drawings are inspired by the characters from his favorite films such as “Rugrats,” “Hey Arnold!” and “The Simpsons.” And he has garnered a huge following on Instagram.

Handy aspires to develop his own original black characters and cartoon series, and he hopes to encourage other black artists. Handy thought that black children should be seen in more positive images on TV. “Black kids need to be able to see more representations of themselves in media.”

However, Tyron faced conflicting reactions from the public. Some people reacted negatively to the artist’s work, accusing him of “keeping racism alive.” Others are pleased that Tyron has a good way to address racial issues.
