Black creators are versatile in every way both inside and outside of traditional Black culture.

Two Black background artists, Arthell and Darnell Isom, alongside animator Henry Thurlow, founded D’ART Shtajio — a 2-D animation studio in Tokyo — making it the “first major anime studio created by Black animators” in Japan, CBR reports.

The three animators created their studio infusing American culture with Japanese anime, and in the process have worked on some huge anime projects.
