I am exhibiting at Blueprint show in San Francisco! It is my first show in 3 years and I am so thrilled to be doing it. I had a long break but ready to go again and show all my newest work along with some older work that was never seen or submitted. Follow me on Instagram on September 30th- October 4th as I travel to San Francisco, set up my booth and exhibit for 3 days. I will be posting on IG Stories daily. See you then!
I couldn’t be more excited to share these new illustrations with you!
I have been creating them for the last couple of weeks in a flurry to get them out into the world. I knew once I saw the first one emerge it was something special. I couldn’t wait to get to the next one to see how it would come out.
They started with an idea for creating illustrations of women. I love all the illustrations I see now and wanted to see how I could put my spin on it. I had a few musts:
they had to be women of color
they had to have freckles (like me). I don’t often see freckles on women illustrations
they had to be wearing patterned outfits
they had to have dynamic hair
Here is the first one I created. She is near and dear to me and I see a bit of myself in all of them. I love making them and creating their looks. They even get original outfits I design from my patterns!
I call her “Lady B”
Meet Lady D
Meet Lady T
and finally Meet Lady C
Grab one or get all 4 ladies in the shop. I am selling them on fine art paper in 3 sizes and a 5x7 set of 4.
Get them here in the “Art Print” section of the shop! Hope they bring you as much joy as I get from them.
I had the pleasure of working on a super-fun project for the CA Lottery. I created illustrations for the lottery that depicted Los Angeles, Sacramento and San Francisco/Oakland landmarks. I was approached as they were interested in working with a California artist to create illustrations that celebrate these cities and showcase major landmarks and those that have significance in the African American communities. The campaign just launched in the last couple of weeks and I couldn't wait to share it. The illustrations were placed in local papers in LA districts and animated, digital banners were placed on sites such as Bet.com and Hip Hop Wired.
