feature: ‘eclecticweirdo’ weekly drawing by nadya nickels – chocolate

April 6, 2015

You may remember illustrator Nadya Nickels from the piece she wrote for us a few months ago. In it, Nadya explained: “I grew up in Puerto Rico, where my family is from. I’m really proud of both of my heritages and cultures. I’ve always loved goth/punk style, but as a black girl it was kinda hard to find myself in that scene. So I make sure to put myself and those around me into my art.”
She will create weekly illustrations for AFROPUNK showcasing the ‘Eclectic Weirdos’. The first one, ‘Chocolate’, is below. Check it out!
