What if I Restyled Calendars usually “only for White People”

Illustrated calendars have existed for centuries and representing mainly white people. Nowadays, black people are searching for gift and stationery that represent them. Black representation in visual art and media is on the mind of individuals now more than ever. 

Because black women have been invisible for the media for so long, and when they were not not it was often through stereotypes, perpetuating inhuman and dangerous narratives. This erasure from mass media also affected how these black people see themselves, diminishing their self-esteem. This is why I created unique calendars that represent black women and little black girls. 

Dream board calendar

I created this calendar as a vision board. It features 13 illustration of black women. It is ideal for women who have an artistic sensibility or who want to have a positive vision of their life. 

Black Girl Magic Calendar

Little Black Girl Calendar

It is important for little black girls’ confidence to be able to see themself in a gift. However, we struggle to find gifts that represent then in mainstream gift store. 

I created this special calendar to celebrate the beauty and innocence of little black girls. The illustrations represent them in their day-to-day activities, some are created in a magical environment to play with their imagination.
