African Queens (Part 1) Illustration by Gloria William featuring Dimah Umeh, Jackie Aina, Patricia Bright, Nyma Tang, Temi Otedola, Dora Owusu, Mariama Diallo and Cuppy. The art word was inspired by the looks they wore in their Don’t Rush Challenge video.

On Instagram Gloria said,

” Absolutely loved the african twist these queens @dimmaumeh🇳🇬  @jackieaina🇳🇬 @thepatriciabright🇳🇬  @nymatang🇸🇸  @temiotedola🇳🇬 @doraowusu🇬🇭 @mariamadiallo_🇬🇳 @cuppymusic🇳🇬 gave the #DontRushChallenge. So, I decided to illustrate some looks from their video. Have you seen the video? Which look is your fave?

P.S. This has to be one of the most challenging illustrations I have done. I started it 3 weeks ago but left it to work on other illustrations cos I totally underestimated how painstaking it’ll be to render African prints. I couldn’t even do all the looks from the video but oh well I’m glad I posted something😩.
