ON PURPOSE is a bubbly and empowering digital collage of photography and illustrations. The project came about when Mark and Nia shared the work from one of their shoots with me, and proposed I draw over the photos. The message took on a life of it's own and became a depiction of black girl magic.
Mark is a captivating photographer, whose personality and prowess assisted his rocket speed success and bare fruit for the hungry creative. His connection to this project helped fueled the inception and completion of it.
Nia is a stunning model and stylist. Her comfort and often sultry glow created the ambiance for this series. Each photo spoke something new to me as I began the drawings, but all held a similar feeling that resonated with me.
