The amazing ladies at the Homegirl Box reached out to me for a collab and I couldnt say no! It’s by women of color, with all woman created goods, in a seasonal box. And this one is the Cardi B box. You know I’m a regular degular schmegular girl from the Bronx, too, so this speaks to me. My contribution is my popular Galaxy Princess print (available at shopzahirakelly.com). The box drops tomorrrow! Check out info and details at TheHomegirlBox.com. Be sure to cop yours!

I have my amazing patrons at patreon.com/bad_dominicana to thank for allowing me enough sustenance to focus on creating more last year. It’s really improved my life and art and I am eternally grateful to all of you for the support. I was curious to see what I did throughout the year as I was busy cranking stuff out and not really minding how much. Turns out I did alot more than I thought. I compiled most of the visual stuff I created in this post. Most! This is not any of the writing, only a sliver of the shop merchandise, and there are more unfinished pieces, private commissioned pieces from my day job and freelancing, and artwork from projects and collabs that are going to be released later this year. *phew* It was a laborious, productive year. Here’s to 2017 taking us to new heights.

After much deliberation and pussyfooting, this last August I opened up my own proper online shop, just to try it. For the last couple years I had been selling random stuff from RedBubble and was really frustrated with their layout and terrible pricing and wondering if it was worth the money to have my own standalone online store. And while my initial shop was featured in Paper Mag for my handcrafted foodie 3d nail art sets, I was hesitant to stock anything else. I am an artist, yes, but I have been very shy about showing people what I create for most my life. Background: Only in my late 20’s did I finally post something online (a black cheesecake pin-up) and whaddya know, my art career started picking up.
