Gallery: Jon Daniel's 'Afro Supa Sistas'

Jon Daniel's 'Afro Supa Sistas' series celebrates pop cultural heroines of African descent from Erykah Badu to Grace Jones.

Earlier this year London-based African Caribbean creative Jon Daniel opened up a collection of comic memorabilia in his Afro Supa Heroes exhibit. In the series, which was previously on display at London's V&A Museum of Childhood, Daniel celebrates his childhood heroes and heroines throughout the diaspora as a personal collection of 1970s and 80s African Diaspora action figures. In conjunction with Afro Supa Hero, Daniel also designed a series of Afro Super Sistas– cartoon images celebrating pop culture heroines and musical icons of African descent the likes of Lupita Nyong'o, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monáe, Grace Jones, Jill Scott, and more. Peep a look at the Afro Supa Sistas above and look out for more tour dates for Jon Daniel's Afro Supa Heroes.
