Creatives pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman with stunning artwork
Creatives have been sharing illustrated tributes to Chadwick Boseman on social media after he passed away last week, at the age of 43. Fans and those who worked with Boseman have shared artwork, which includes pieces created by hand and digital art.
Boseman is known for bringing King T’Challa to life in Marvel’s groundbreaking Black Panther, and many of the pieces are accompanied with the tagline “Rest in Power, King”. There’s also a host of moving acknowledgements of how Boseman inspired artists professionally and personally. We’ve included our favourite tributes below.
