Artist Arnold Randall

I think of my illustrations as the beginning of a dialogue between what the viewer may think black sci-fi looks like, and what it looks like to me. My art is created to challenge our perception of the impact of black people in the future. Each illustration tells a different story, centered around characters that are representative of the future of black people while also drawing on parallels from modern-day life.
