This is just another quick pop in to let you know what I have been up to. I hope we all had a great Easter break and are looking forward to getting back on the grind? Probably not!
Well as for me, I got a bit fidgety and stopped doing what I was supposed to do. Instead, I suddenly had the very strong urge to do some drawing. However, let me explain first.
Having spent plenty of time both at home and abroad, it has been easy to acquire an appreciation for the intricate differences, and subtle sameness, of the individual at heart. This knowledge only serves to fuel a passion for my cultural heritage and faith.
Growing up in an environment where most of the religious propaganda available in the mainstream does not represent my race; I realised it was time for me to be a part of the solution.
This is where my original artwork comes into play; as an attempt to keep hold of a history steeped in rich culture and embrace an emerging story.
- Memories, experiences, and lasting impressions that have made a positive impact on my life.
- Caricatures of women and girls; with locs, kinks, and fabulous curls.
- Faces and hair that look like mine.
Then, most importantly, they all come with a Bible verse for encouragement.
For ages, I have been in search of a similar minimalistic Afrocentric design made from quality paper; good enough to let your loved one know that they are truly valued.
Well, the wait is over, and now you can purchase these unique Encouragement Cards online at my new Etsy Shop CulturedFaith; where I will be adding new designs over the next few weeks.
Sometimes, it is just better to do the best that you can with a bad situation, and then, ask God to bless the rest.
