Brown girl party -- @browngirlparty
BrownGirlParty started out in 2013 as a joke between Milloux SG (@Milloux) and I (@MissJessaJordan). It was a moment bursting with high energy, respect, creativity and love. We were stoked about the amount of Brown and Black womxn around us, creating and supporting each other. I bottled that moment and birthed it back into the world in 2016 as a t-shirt company with one aim: to inspire Womxn/Grrls of Color to live their most authentic and unapologetic lives full of self love, support, ambition and creativity.

Through associating a color with an image, whether it be from the head or a quirky magazine, Lola forms a concept deep enough to enable deep thinking.
Andrew Lackland -- @eggeyed
Vaguely spooky, definitely silly hand drawn illustrations screen printed onto a variety of papers and fabrics. In addition I make paintings, sculptures, things in between and whatever other semi developed concepts which manage to take form! Whether you're looking to buy some art, just look at some stuff, or talk to my guardian angel cpr baby Roger, PULL THROUGH!
Goldiloxx -- @placidlyacidic
Abstract artist in favor of arbitrary color combinations revolving around self-emotions and what comes out of being induced by the feeling followed by the relief from focus of the story told, but open to interpretation, and using a personal obsession with flowers to allow a compliment of the work.
