Updates

Hey there! It’s been a while since I posted a news update to my website, but please rest assured I have been updating my gallery with my latest pieces of artwork, my YouTube channel where you can see more about my breast reduction surgery experience. I also have taken up the hobby of skating during the summer!

During winter 2021 I worked on more exciting commissions including with SEGA! I have also gotten back in to Twitch streaming again where you can check out my drawing progress or watch me play games too. I’m glad to be back to streaming, I slipped off for a long while last year but I still love to stream and want to keep doing it. I’m aiming to do this more because the community brings me so much joy!

My etsy store is still open and functioning if you wish to purchase any art pieces available; I even have an artwork series currently displayed at my first exhibition feature called ‘From Scratch’! This exhibit is at Spitafields Studios please check it out if you can.

Thank you for reading and I look forward to sharing more of my artwork and exciting commissions on here!

Aliyah Art Store on Etsy

I wanted to create some content for my social media that showcases how I package my prints and the quality of the products I have for sale on my Etsy.

As well as this, I wanted to show reviews from recent customers which have been nothing but positive in a fun way! I had the idea to create it similar to the iMessage format. I designed the speech bubbles in Adobe Illustrator, downloaded the SF fonts and then created the templates in Photoshop to complete and save off for web and social media apps. These were the results!

HANAMI 2021

Hanami (花見, “flower viewing”) is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers; I wanted to finally create an illustration celebrating the beautiful cherry blossoms of spring. I adore spring and it’s definitely my favourite season!

Moody Knits

I recently did an art influencer collaboration with my good friend’s new brand Moody Knits where she knits beautiful, chunky, long and colourful scarves and other knitwear! The pandemic has truly bought the best out of her and we did a collaboration together where she gifted me a bespoke scarf and commissioned an illustration from me too!

Updates

A lot has been happening my end, along with fantastic opportunities for commissions as an artist, I am also growing as an influencer too! I am absolutely excited about the campaigns I’ve been asked to work on and it really warms my heart to have this recognition. To be a body positive influencer and an artist influencer too, to teach others that not only can they make art but they are also themselves – ART!

This is the message I want to spread across, along with good vibes and fun – always!

YOU ARE ART.

Xing Fu Tang

I am really proud to say I have not one, but 2 collaborations with my fave ever boba tea place Xing Fu Tang! The first was a visit and the second is this illustration too. I am so excited to be working with them and I hope it only continues!

Body Positivity

During the second lockdown in UK, I was asked by the major lingerie brand (that I also love!) Curvy Kate, to do my first partnership takeover with them on Instagram! They wanted me to model the sets they sent over to me and also create a piece of art. It was both very exciting and nerve-wrecking as I’ve not ever modelled lingerie before, nor ever fathomed the thought of it because I’ve always felt really insecure about my body for as long as I can remember.

This opened the gates to body positivity for me, something I have followed for so long to feel reassured about myself. Now it’s my turn to get to be a part of that movement too and inspire others! The reality is that I am actually very sporty and very fit, but my body doesn’t change shape or “lose weight” this is just my frame – and I am healthy and CURVY!

Check out my takeover in the story highlights here: https://www.instagram.com/curvykate/

OCEAN – It’s Not About

OCEAN’s latest single ‘It’s Not About’ is now out on all good streaming platforms! It’s a beautiful ballad and she is super talented, I’m so honoured to have worked on the cover artwork for this awesome song which is so catchy!
