Hippy Potter a.k.a. illustrator Thaddeus is a quirky afrofuturistic artist whose mission is “redefining social stereotypes through provocative and vibrant images”. That intention reverberates throughout his portfolio of beautiful black faces which feature inspiration creatives like Solange and Erykah Badu and intersectional representative characters that promote self-love, community acceptance, and of course #BlackExcellence.

In addition to the illustrations, Hippy Potter also has a new picture book out called,‘SHINE: The Podderite Chronicles’ and it follows a group of curious kids who embark on an adventure into their heritage that is out of this world.
