We’re partnering with a team of artists to turn your travel memories into works of art. Each week we’ll unveil a new artist—so be sure to stick around.
This week, our second artist is the talented Queenbe Monyei!
Queenbe is an illustrator, designer, gif maker, and author of the children’s book “The Magic String.” After graduating from UCLA, she worked abroad as a teacher in the UK, Istanbul, Denmark, and Germany while developing her craft as an illustrator. She creates truly unique illustrations that bring awareness to marginalized groups in everyday situations through bold colors, hoping to shed light on their humanity. As we began our collaboration, we had one very important question to ask her…
Q: What is your favorite trip that you’ve taken?
A: One of my favorite trips was the first time I went to Sweden with one of my closest friends. My favorite part of Stockholm was the old town (Gamla stan). We walked all over the city, had amazing food, met up with friends, and visited wonderful museums!
