By April 15, 2017 No Comments

Shannon Wright is an illustrator and cartoonist based out of Virginia. She’s created Illustrations for The Guardian, TIME Magazine, Mother Jones, Bitch Magazine, and Boom Comics. Her work tends to explore social issues like race and gender through a slice-of-life lens, which leads to her recent series on Black Hair.
In this striking series, Shannon makes Illustrations out of Natural Hair and the different hairstyles explored by black women, showing off Black hair textures, hairstyles and stroking Pop culture undertones into her creation.
