Week 7 of 100 Collages

So on Friday I posted the collages from Week 6 and today I’m giving y’all Week 7. This is the week when I really felt myself growing in my style and making some real waves. I started getting more political with a lot of these. It was a nice way of channeling out these emotions.

Day 43

This was inspired by that Pepsi ad from a couple years ago starring Kendall Jenner. The one that was supposed to end racism. Yeah… So with the news at this point focusing on the “riots” I wanted to address this through art.

Day 44

I really love flowers and black women. Those are just my two favorite elements of art. I found the quote online and it sat really well with me.

Day 45

This is one of my favorites. I love the asymmetry of it.

Day 46

More flowers and black women. Y’all see the theme.

Day 47

Another one of my favorites. Janelle Monae gives off revolution vibes. I actually outlined the eyes with the white gel pen but didn’t like how it looked so I added that strip over her eyes. It definitely adds to the theme and sits really well with the quote.

Day 48

I think I just love all of these pieces from this particular week.

Day 49

I just love this so much. The color scheme, the accents, the juxtaposition is just *chef’s kiss*

Which one is your favorite?
