I came across this sister’s site while scoping the web for some Funky Stuff! and I was blown away by her creativity with keeping the images of 1970’s Funk alive. The images quickly reminded me of the Blaxploitation film era. The art is funky, crazy kool and I had an immediate connection with her designs. A couple of emails back and forth and Desiree was happy to be apart of The Museum of UnCut Funk Family and we can’t get enough of that funky stuff!
Please read about Desiree and her company AFRODELIK DESIGNS.
WELCOME TO AFRODELIK DESIGNS brand…collections of hand drawn art created through the spirit of SOUL
It began with a pen and paper, and the desire to show the world my creativity. For over 20 years, I have had a passion for drawing, which comes from the heart. My natural artistic talent of drawing makes me feel at peace.
My name is Desiree Marshall, and in 2006, I decided to fulfill a life-long dream, and launched my apparel company AFRODELIK DESIGNS brand.
The various pieces feature hand-drawn original designs celebrating culture. There are currently three distinct collections available:
AFROCITY: a memorable throwback to blaxploitation movies of the 1970s
AFRIKA: inspirational line drawings dedicated to the various African cultures
IKONS: an ode to trendsetters and community leaders in music, politics and literature, to name a few
AFRODELIK DESIGNS is a young and exciting company that produces collections of original HAND DRAWN art, on T-shirts, Bags, Greeting cards, and much.
We are currently working on new designs and new products for Summer 2010.
Our products are enjoyed by men and women between the ages of 24-48, and children aged 1-12 years old, of ALL shapes and colours. There is something for EVERYONE!
Afrodelik collections have been described as unique, bold, urban and inspirational, and international celebrities such as Erykah Badu, actors Vivica A.Fox and Derek Luke, singer Jully Black, and playwright and actress Trey Anthony, all own Afrodelik tees.
