DEPLETION: Anita Easterwood

“I've never thought this through to this extent so allow for a pause because this is me trying to understand myself for the first time too..but I didn’t realize how intertwined my passion for drawing was with Black culture..."


This issue is a year in the making, providing a glimpse of what made 2020 an unforgettable year.

Through tragedy, unrest, and uncertainty…We praise the black creative for remaining resilient.

This year has been tough, but we look towards a new year with lessons learned and renewed optimism for a better day.

Black creatives, we give you your roses while you can still smell them.

Applaud Yourself.

Don’t let others try to define what you already know about yourself. Self-worth as a creative is a major key. It lands you meaningful work, it could put more money in your pocket, and best of yet, it could lead you to a host of new opportunities you would have never imagined to be possible.
