Illustrations That Celebrate!

We were commissioned by She Leads Africa to illustrate the 7 entrepreneurs for the Visa #WhereYouShopMatters initiative. 

Pictured here is Linda Gieskes Mwamba, the founder of @sukisukinaturals, a lawyer turned premium beauty mogul. Read her story here.


Oluremi Martins-Areola

From creating her first Afro wig to dominating the natural hair wig market, Remi's entrepreneurial journey was sparked by her decision to go natural and a conversation about natural hair on Instagram. Read about her journey here.

This illustration could be celebrating your journey. Ready to work with us?


Claire du Preez

A small batch of juices grew into the Honest Food Store, where mouth-watering vegan and vegetarian dishes are created for health-conscious clientele. Claire is on a mission to make food affordable, attainable and delicious. Convinced yet as to how illustrations can make the difference in your project? 

We do Solemnly Swear That Black Girls Are Magic

If you cannot tell already, we are obsessed with illustrating Black Women. Our Instagram is proof. But just to brag some more, here is a collection of illustrations celebrating Black Women. Our illustration styles range from faceless graphic art to ultra-realistic art.
