It is a clever way to get educated up on the life of the notable artists. The graphic novel’s visual storytelling taps into both artist’s domain rather than following the traditional full worded format. The stories are factually sound, after being heavily researched by the authors and contain excerpts from original letters. Hopefully more biographies in the future will come out graphic novel style!

Yellow Fever: Trailer by Ng’endo Mukii
We recently saw this awesome short Yellow Fever and ’twas a great watch. It is a mixed media film including animations that are highly textured and gorgeous. You can almost feel your hair being pulled. There is powerful cultural and race context within the film, exploring an African woman’s internalization of western beauty ideals. You can see some more of Ng’endo Mukii’s beautiful work here.
We are loving these music videos by Tim Fite.
Not only is his music lovely but he’s also a visual artist, as you can see by the cool animations in these music videos.
Particularly loving the morphing and contorting glitter in “Hold Me All Night.” His other art, which you can see here encompasses illustration and video with music and sweet storytelling. It results in something quite captivating!
