Hamer My work is inspired by the cosmos, music, nature, divine femininity, and the complexities throughout the Black culture. When I explain what I do to someone at a coffee shop, I just say "I create colorful, cosmic queens". I let their imagination do the rest ;) website - aohamer.com Instagram- @aohamer, FaceBook- A.O. Hamer Paypal - email@example.com Damon Brown I am a SeattIe, WA based artist who, from an early age, knew I loved art and to create new designs. I drew inspiration from comic books as I spent countless hours exploring different images and heroic storylines which opened my eyes to artistic creation. As my imagination grew, I began to study various art movements, illustration styles, and urban art. This, in turn, taught to me how things like color, shape, story, and texture can manifest into something so vivid for people to feel and see. I was then able to blend my love for classical art and illustration. www.creativelou.com Instagram:Creative_Lou Facebook:Creativelouvisuals PayPal: Damon@creativelou.com Cash APP$CreativeLou Venmo:@Damon-Brown-30
