A few pieces from my junior project this year. Our theme was “Kings and Queens”, so I chose to illustrate the life of the amazing warrior queen Nzingha.
She used a guy as a chair when the Portuguese governor didn’t give her something to sit on. She got the black slave soldiers from the Portuguese side to ditch their camp and join hers. She had a harem of dudes and called them her “wives”. She kept fighting battles alongside her soldiers until she was 80 friggin years old.
