Black business of the day: DorcasCreates


DORCAS MAGBADELO is the creator behind DorcasCreates - a London-based illustration brand that celebrates the beauty of black women and the diversity of black womanhood.

The illustrator is largely self taught and passionate about representing and uplifting black women through illustration.

Here you'll find a lot of bold colours, pattern-work and references to her Nigerian heritage and all of her illustrations start out as pencil drawings which are then edited digitally.

Dorcas’ work aims to represent black women in a positive, fun light and highlight the sisterhood that exists amongst black women in the UK. Products available include super cute greeting cards, art prints, tote bags, earrings and lapel pins.
