MEET STEPHANIE AKA WOW, ANOTHER ARTIST...
When we first stumbled upon Stephanie, AKA Wow, Another Artist’s Instagram page, we knew she was the perfect artist to bring our favorite Babes Rage icons to life. We can’t wait to debut the illustration Stephanie did soon! Her first illustration for Babes Rage is a dazzling dream come true with exquisite detailing.
Before we share the new Babes Rage illustration by Stephanie, let’s learn a little about her and her art. We are happy to introduce Stephanie, AKA Wow, Another Artist.
BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH STEPHANIE
Babes Rage: Can you tell us a little about your background? Where are you from? How did you first get into art?
I was born and grew up in London, UK, but currently live in Berlin, Germany. As cliché as it might sound, I have been into art for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I loved drawing the characters from cartoons I watched all the time!
Babes Rage: Can you tell us about some of the themes in your illustrations?
My main theme is to create retro-inspired illustrations that represent black women. I have always loved retro styles, vintage comics, and pin-up.
However, art created within this community often lacks representation of black people and other people of colour, so I decided to create those drawings myself. Who better to draw black women than another black woman?
Babes Rage: What or who inspires you most?
My mum is also an artist, and her main focus is women, too, so she definitely inspired me and left a big impression on my own art. I’m also a big fan of Robert McGinnis’ work and generally draw a lot of inspiration from events in my life.
Babes Rage: Do you have plans, shows, or projects we should be on the lookout for in the future?
I have a lot of plans, including soon selling prints and products and doing some pop-up shops and markets, so stay tuned on my social media for announcements.
Thank you, Stephanie! We can’t wait to keep up with your art. We’re looking forward to all of your projects and pieces in the future.
