let’s time travel

do you remember visiting the post office as a kid? after the line of package-senders, after the brick walls, after the monotonous ticking of the clock, you reached the glass counter. underneath the glass, there were rows and rows of stickers. (well, actually, they were postage stamps.)

for any kid, postage stamps are the gems of mail. in this project, i aim to create stamps with people who are downright cool! specifically, i focus on black female artists. why? because we remember history through art. i want to thank the women who made my history.

let’s celebrate black history, and let’s celebrate it every month!
