A couple of weeks ago a reader contacted me for some help. She was looking for illustrators who depict people of color in their work. Alexa, the reader, is a fan of the artists Belle & Boo, Hide n Seek & The Black Apple. So, I had a task and a style of art and always up for a challenge, I was on the case!
Over the next weeks, I will be sharing my discoveries with you and Alexa. I do hope you enjoy and please feel free to share any artists that you may know of, I’d love to add to my list.
c howard designs – This is really the only print in Christa Howard’s shop that fits in with my quest, but it’s just so lovely that I had to include it. I love the way the woman is standing, her arm, the flowing dress, the color…it’s beautiful.
kil sook – I’m sure that the work of Kim Haller is not new to you, especially since I’ve featured her before on Indie Fixx for the Feed Your Soul Project. Kim’s shop is full of work featuring people of all shades of human and is totally adorable!
danita – I’m sure that you have also come across Danita’s work once or twice as well. A mixed media artist, Danita creates paintings, mixed media pieces, art dolls, jewelry & more. A lot of her work features sweetly darling little brown girls. I am most definitely a fan and especially love her Frida series.
