New Design Is Here + Meet The Artist!


Welcome all to my redesigned page! New background, new header, new colors; so much new stuff! As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I had a new design in the works. Well, it turns out that my dear friend and awesome graphic designer, Nakaya de Jong, got it all finished today!

A cover made for fun.

Personally, I love the new design. What do you think?

While we’re at it, it’s time for me to show a bit of my gratitude by showcasing Nakaya’s art a bit. All drawings and designs shown in this post were used with her permission.

Nakaya de Jong lives in The Netherlands and spent three years in Nigeria when she was younger. At twenty years young, she’s in her fourth year at the Grafisch Lyceum in Rotterdam, with a focus on Art & Design.

She is an amazingly helpful and kind person with brilliant art that can only get better and better as time goes on. Don’t believe me? Just look at these pieces she created.

Not only are we partners in crime an author and artist duo; we’ve been friends for several years now and it doesn’t look like it’ll change anytime soon!

As you can see, she creates various things in different styles and with different materials. This is just a small glimpse into her collection. She has much more art that is well worth taking a look at.

Don’t believe me? Why don’t you take this chance to find out!

If you’d like to get in touch with her or see more of her artwork, here are the two places where you can do so:
