I was interviewed by the lovely Heeral whom I met on a project for young people that I was coordinating last year. She studies illustration and needed to write an interview and essay about her favourite illustration – which was a piece done by me! I am very flattered and happy to share this 🙂
Apologies for not updating here for a while but I have been a busy bee! There are a lot of things in the works such as plus size modeling, becoming a fully qualified swim teacher, full-time work in e-sports, Insomnia Gaming Festival with Nintendo, my freelance artworks/illustrations, I’ve also started to paint again AND I’m cosplay making!
All I can say is watch this space, some amazing things are about to unfold and I’m so excited to share that with you!
Thank you 🙂
I was hoping for a sunny summer in London just like last year but it’s not pulling through. So instead here is a tropical doodle illustration of me procrastinating about summer!
A t-shirt design I did in collaboration with a colleague and friend of mine affected by the terrible incident at Grenfell Tower back in 2017. We wanted to create something in remembrance and he had a vision to create something with 72 doves, he commissioned me to bring his idea to life. I was strongly inspired by MC Escher here and used the optical illusion of birds intertwining and shaping in to one another to create this final design. I feel it really represents the togetherness of the community and each bird represents one of those lost in the fire.
In love with listening to Jhene Aiko at the moment and redrew the album artwork for ‘Triggered (freestyle)’.
I am really getting in to drawing album artworks and will be illustrating more for some of my favourite songs – watch this space!
Updates to my work portfolio to showcase the work I have done for clients recently.
I created a Linktree so everything you need to know or see of Aliyah Art is one place for you!
Miles Morales – The Sunflower
An amazing film, probably the best animation of 2018! It’s just breathtaking, beautifully executed and so visually pleasing! I had to draw some fan art. Above all the representation in this film is so important, even I didn’t realise how much until I finished the movie the impact this has. It’s things like this that drive me forward in order to make sure there is more diversity in art and animation.
