Just Some Dope Instagram Artistry

Just Some Dope Instagram Artistry

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but the brilliant work of Latoya Mathis, known on Instagram as latoyaswarmmode and Twitter as Swarmmode defies description.

Particularly striking is this image of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., drawn to celebrate his birthday on January 15th. Her subjects vary, as the other included photos show, but her artistry and attention to detail are nothing short of amazing. Countless times browsing her work I often have to remind myself that these are not photographs, but sketches.

Latoya’s work seems to have a quality of life about it. If you don’t follow her on Instagram and Twitter, you should, if for no other reason than to bathe in the beauty of her black brilliance and soak up some of her Black Girl Magic.
