Afropunk Featured Magazine Spread

Tools Used


A magazine spread that covers the lastest music festivals and events happening across the nation. This issue featured the rise of the Afropunk Festival, a music event originally based in New York that promotes a safe space for African Americans in the alternative punk rock scene.

I was inspired by the Afropunk festival's visuals and images, wrote the copy based on my research, and drew illustrative marks that are loosely based on African tribal face paint to highlight Afropunk's commitment to Afrocentric creativity in music, art, fashion, and writing.
