"The broader 1970’s Black animation collection also includes additional pieces of original artwork from adult animated feature films such as Coonskin and Hey Good Lookin’, as well as opening sequence to the dance television show Soul Train. Other pieces in the collection include racially stereotypical art from 1930’s and 1940’s cartoon shorts. At one time, thousands of hand-painted cels were created and used under the camera to animate every TV and theatrical cartoon. Today’s animation is all computer generated, so hand painted cels represent a lost art form. As relatively little Black animation was produced in the 1970’s and beyond, original production artwork is scarce and rare. Although limited edition reprints of selected scenes from many cartoons and films have been produced, there are very few that have been created from Black animation.” - Sista ToFunky

AWESOME.

*SIDEBAR* Animation today is not “ALL computer generated” (not sure what she means). It is still designed and hand-drawn animated on paper in the larger, international animation industry.*

Although, as a black man myself, I am not fond of the term “Black Animation.” My reason being is simply because we’re Americans and animation is a medium, not something “owned” by a particular group, ethnic or not. you can tell what ethnic group the animation is catering to by the stories, culture and ethnicities of the characters within the medium of animation. The average viewer knows something is for a “black audience” by simply watching it. I think labeling anything “black” first, limits the wider exposure especially in a cultural melting pot like America.

However, props for this video!

they see me Ronin
they hatin’ 

Very jealous! How hard was this? (Are they decals or painted? I know very little about cars, haha! ^.^” ) They look awesome, though!

Haha, well, I hated the car when I first got it, and since my application for the license plate “HWKGUY” has been approved, I decided to go all out. They are decals for now, but they will eventually be painted on. I looked at the art from the comics and free-handed them in a separate art program which took an hour or so; the arrows were the most difficult part.
The colors were also an issue because you have a much wider color selection in an art program than for cars; furthermore, the colors I chose were special order so it took about a week to get everything ready.
The application process took about an hour and a half because one of the targets had to be redone, and since it’s getting colder, it’s harder to get the air bubbles out. 
Well worth the time because I’m very pleased with the result! And I enjoy my car much more now. B^)
