I don’t know anything about this artist. There isn’t much in the way of information on either their Flickr page nor their tumbler site.  I do know, however, that if Robert Crumb had done botanical illustration, it’d look a lot like this.  Organic, textural, creepy, and utterly believable.  Like a drippy, misshapen candle that’s been sitting out all day at a yard sale, you know what it’s made of and why it looks so wonky, yet you still want to pick it up and roll it over in your hand and read it’s alien surface.

Jackie Ormes (August 1, 1911 – December 26, 1985) is known as the first African American female cartoonist. Her strips, featuring the lovable characters Torchy Brown, Candy, Patty-Jo, and Ginger, appeared in the Chicago Defender and Pittsburgh Courier in the 1930s - 1950s. 

Jackie Ormes said, “No more…Sambos…Just KIDS!” and she transformed her attractive, spunky Patty-Jo cartoon character into the first upscale American black doll. At long last, here was an African American doll with all the play features children desired: playable hair, and the finest and most extensive wardrobe on the market, with all manner of dresses, formals, shoes, hats, nightgowns, robes, skating and cowgirl costumes, and spring and winter coat sets, to name a few. (Jackie Ormes Online)
