French Illustrator Nicholle Kobi is Bae and her Braids Art is Dope!

French illustrator Nicholle Kobi is the shiznit! And she has the receipts to prove it.

I am in a blogging group and yesterday, we discussed a Parisian-based illustrator who makes glorious colorful illustrations of black women and celebrates the variety of our complexions, hair texture and different shades and sizes of beauty. I love her work.

Please visit her Instagram pagekobi 6
to see some of her amazing work and to follow her there!


I also discovered through scoping her Instagram page that she has a healthy amount of braided women in her collection. Here are my faves and you can learn more about acquiring prints or getting her to commission a work by going to her Etsy shop where she has loads of wonderful and uplifting products to celebrate us!
