The Night Loops is a creation of a parallel utopic, afro-futuristic community, told through a series of fineliner pen drawings. As a form of escapism, this utopic world is envisioned through the imaginings of figures in pensive states. Culturally significant hairstyles and clothing function as symbolic conduits; objects through which I begin to build this “afrotopia” as both a physical place and as an outer projection of an inner consciousness.
