Expressive Illustrations: Monchi Cards & Taj Francis

Happy Sunday Folks! ❤

We stumbled across some very aesthetically pleasing illustrations of women of colour and thought we’d do the generous thing and share! Both are non-US artists which adds to the increasing global, diverse perspectives on – black specifically and non-white generally – identities and experiences. Check them out below!

First up we have the retro themed Monchi Cards, the art project by the London-based illustrator Nyanza D, who has described her series as presenting “contemporary muses”.

Then we noticed the afro-futuristic work of Jamaican artist Taj Francis, who maintains that risk taking is at the heart of his creativity, manifesting itself in the end product.
