Important to leave your mark - This small panel would find its home amongst 47 others on a wall. A tradition at Snap observed by every new employee. 
As part of the painting, you’re required to write a note on the first layer before the paint. ‘Follow your dreams’🌟

Dan (Mano?) mask from either Liberia or the Ivory Coast. This unique mask is likely a type known as Kaogle, a mask used to lead men into war or for local entertainment, and gets its name from the “Ka”, a curved stick carried by the masquerader used as a sort of baton.

My first attempt at stretching a canvas... let’s just say I’m going to keep practicing. 😂 This one is 5x5ft so perhaps if you’re going to practice stretching canvases- I recommend you start with smaller pieces. Which is what I should’ve done.😉 From my #imigongo #remix series, this one is entitled ‘Emotions’ ✨🎨

Galaxia Caribeña - 11.7 W x 16.5 H
Diablo Cojuelos are the main characters in Dominican Carnival, the story behind this character is the he was thrown on earth and as that happened he broke his leg which caused him to limp and thats where he gets his name from( limping devil). It is said that the mask is supposed to represent the Spaniards who came to the country and enslaved and hurt the natives. .

Finished one! Another piece for Tales of Wagadu - Swala with their cattle, very much inspired by Masaai tribesmen. It was such a pleasure  to paint this piece, when I didn't worry too much about rendering itself, but rather on efficiency of the brushstrokes. I catch myself that I tend to overrender a lot, spending so much time on polishing and detailing illustration, which in some cases is good, but sometimes it's not really needed and I thought so in this case. Composition-wise I was inspired by Dean Cornwell's work and wanted to try someting similar by myself.  What are your thoughts on on it? Would you rather look at this more sketchy/painterly stuff or more polished one? Also, thanks everyone for voting in my stories, it didn't take long to see that majority prefer the picture with a frame, so am I :)
