Hey howdy hey everyone! On today's episode we interview Storyboard Artist and Animator Kalen Whitfield! Kalen's approching his 4th year here in the industry and is eager to share his experiences with us. We talked in depth about how to balance working in the industry while also maintaining your creative voice, being an animator in the indie scene, having artwork on the more mature side, and making it in the industry wile your art is heavily anime influenced.

******* One of the artistic influences mentioned by our guest will not be listed , because the hosts of Black N Animated do not agree with the things this artist has done. We recognize that someone can be influenced by an artist work and not the artist themselves, but we do not wish to offend by giving this person any more of a platform by sharing their work along with the other two artists. ********

 Hey howdy hey folks. Episode 10 is here!

  A little late but we're dropping a new BW or BW whatever you like episode for you. This week we discuss the wonderful Disney princess , Tiana !  Princess and the frog was a movie that was and still is so near and dear to our hearts. However, you can enjoy something immensely but still openly critique it. 

 Kick back and listen to us discuss the issues of animal transformation of minorities in media to sell a point in a story, the double standard of women of color working twice as hard for their happily ever after, and some fun tangents about the Disney Prince's .
