    The Mo Sho - Mo

    While we may be scrolling and checking out art on our screen, here we’ve got Mo using their phone to create charming digital artworks. These works can be customised and turned into stickers. Right from depicting a plain cuppa coffee or a moon lit evening sky by the lake, you can find depth and meaning behind each artwork.  And hey! You could even get ‘em printed and framed for that favourite corner in your house or at work. Using art as a medium, The Mo Sho is creating content around queer community. The artworks are  ‘Pay As You Like’, making it accessible for everyone. Go be generous. 

    Debangana Illustrations

    Debangana makes queer and women-centric custom illustrations. Debangana’s motto is to make people feel or see things differently through her customised art. She facilitates conversations through her art whether it’s talking about history of pride in Bengal, mental well being in the queer universe, etc. Using upcycled packaging for all the products, Debangana makes affordable custom notebook covers (e.g. - an amalgamation of epic Hollywood movies), business cards, prints, and, queer and women centric illustrations. 

    That’s quite a bunch of super creative folks with an interesting set of artworks to choose from. And we can’t wait to get our hands on ‘em. We urge you to check them out, support them by purchasing from them and show some love y’all!
