Hypothesis: The most common reasoning for making Cecil white is by far, ‘because his voice actor is white’. So, as Kevin is voiced by a black man I decided to see if that would be reflected at all in depictions of his character.
Method: As there aren’t nearly as many pictures of Kevin I couldn’t do the same ‘random sampling’ so I basically hunted down every last head canon I could find, through searching tags on Tumblr and Google. I was careful to only count each person’s head canon once. (Fanart only, as with my previous Cecil searches to keep things consistent.)
Results: There is no significant difference in the ratio of white to POC depictions of Kevin vs depictions of Cecil (as reported in these graphs here) http://ivynajspyder.tumblr.com/post/58446192473/fantasticallyperfectass-wolfwum-hello-night

I like seeing cutups, gifsets, collages, etc made from comic art. I think it’s cool, I like seeing readers be creative. But when you come to put it on Tumblr and tag it, as well as tagging it with “mine”, how about tagging it with the name of the artist whose work you made it from, as well?
