D. Mathieu Cassendo is a brilliant visual artist who prioritizes diversity and a celebration of black history and black people in their digital character renderings. Cassendo’s inclusive cartoons feature a range of black and brown folks, both gender conforming and non-conforming characters, some with disabilities, some who wear the hijab, others with vitiligo, and all of these characters with a variety of body types and hair textures. In addition to their stand-alone pieces, D. is also the author/creator of “La Petite Suceuse”, a fantasy vampire comic series published by the Editions Berber1313.
