Black Lives Matter

This illustration was actually an unfinished piece from 2018 that I came across it whilst I was organising my files on my laptop. That’s when the idea hit me, and I was able to complete the piece with haste because it just was the perfect composition and concept for me to portray an issue I feel really passionate about and that is incredibly close to home.

As we all slowly adjust back to reality and lockdown eases; remember this isn’t a moment, it’s a movement. Protect the young black minds that will drive the next generation, we are all helping to bring change.

BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER.

ALIYAH ART – TWITCH TRAILER

With the new and updated layout for Twitch users, it allows you to upload a trailer that shows to visitors while you’re offline. I also saw this as the perfect opportunity to showcase all of the fun things I’ve gotten up to on Twitch since starting in January this year!

I hope you enjoy 🙂

Eclipse Magazine

My lovely and dear friend Cleo has launched Eclipse Magazine and as part of the launch, I will be hosting a virtual life drawing session in collaboration with them! I’m very excited to do this, I absolutely love life drawing and I truly believe it was the key in to helping me master drawing.

Please do come along and tune in on Instagram Live.

COSY – NICS FT MANGA

New artwork for new single Cosy by the talented and most loyal bro Nics featuring the OG Manga St. Hilare. Really happy with this piece because of the use of colour and the fun of portraying a burning sunset. The single Cosy is now available to stream on all streaming platforms, check it out!

safiyyah – third eye

This project has been a work in progress for the past couple of months for the talented and good friend Safiyyah. She’s dropping her first EP and it was a great opportunity for us to finally collaborate and create something amazing! We work together at our local leisure centre and instantly hit it off as friends, we vibe so well (and so do our art forms!) and always used to discuss that we one day have to collaborate on something together – and here it is! I hope this is the first of many collaborations for us.

The EP ‘Third Eye’ will be released by the end of this month on all good streaming platforms! You can also check out her singles on Spotify here.

 

 

ALIYAH ART TEASONA

Since reaching Twitch Affiliate, I’ve been so happy and wearing lilac/purple this whole week! Including this illustration I’ve been doing on stream which is my Teasona – for those who don’t know, I love a cuppa tea! I also drink it often in my streams, so I only felt it adequate to draw myself with Lavender-like tea leaves chilling (or brewing?) in tea. What I love about drawing my own original artworks is that you can really express how you’re feeling at the time, and it’s always fun to reflect back on!

Twitch Affiliate

I wanted to share the good news that a week ago, I became a Twitch Affiliate! I’m so overwhelmed and thankful for everyone’s ongoing support and enjoyment of what I do. I’m so excited to continue on my journey combining my love for art and games then sharing that with others too! 

Also in this current, strange situation with COVID-19, particularly in London right now, it’s an opportunity for me to continue on with this! (Even though I’m mostly home doing these things anyway xD). I am able to work from home with my day job then hop straight in to a stream, so do keep a lookout and follow me for more!

Take care of yourselves. ❤
