New illustration. This is my take if an art nouveau poster was done for Aida Overton Walker (1880- 1914). Here is Aida black nouveau style. She said " Unless we learn the lesson of self-appreceation and practice it, we shall spend our lives imitating other people and deprecating ourselves." Aida ain't ever lied :) #aidaovertonwalker #artnouveau #blacknouveau #mucha #blackgirlmagic #blackgirljoy by Asha Jamila @astridbluebelle, 10 April 2018 (@webstagram.me)
