Julz Swim is a swimwear and lifestyle brand based in Cape Town, South Africa. I was asked to be the first creative in the “Creatives Collection”, explained by the brand as, “a collection of pieces exclusively designed for JULZ by a handful of Cape Town's most celebrated creatives”. My face illustration and collages are, I felt, what best represent me as a creative. I hand-painted a series of faces for JULZ and used them to create a repeat pattern. The Papaya Queen collage was created using old fashion and National Geographic magazines. I hand-cut and scanned in the collage to create this bold print.
