My name is D and I am also known both on youtube and instagram as "nydiva92". I am an independent artist and an indie comic developer. I am currently working on a comic series entitled, "Confessions of an Invisible Nubian Queen." 
The series has inspired a lot of other creations, such as my "We Run This" canvas painting.

          

I began this comic series to encourage unity within the black race, to provide a positive message to the world, and to re-assure EVERYONE that we do in fact inhabit a lot of the same struggles. We have a lot more in common than we think. So to empower my black women and to also display a positive image of black women, I created these weekly posts. 

My First Comic strip was inspired by a story a teacher told me about a student in their class crying because a little boy broke up with her on Valentine's day because she was too dark and her mom took her braids out and so he also discovered that her hair was "too nappy"... and so began my confession to young black women everywhere who find themselves in this troubling circumstance:



                           
Confession #1: You cannot assign your self worth to someone else's opinion. As long as YOU think that you're beautiful, then you're beautiful.

And so the concept began and continued to grow with one motive in mind: To allow young girls the opportunity to see themselves as beautiful despite their differences.            

 

Confession # 8: All people can grow long hair. Fact

The quality of my comics have definitely gotten better as time has progressed and with practice makes perfect. With your contributions I will not only be able to create, post, and do give away's more frequently, but also the quality of my art will only get better and better.

Goals
$14 of $1,000 per month
My ultimate goal is to create a graphic novel entitled, "Confessions of an Invisible Nubian Queen," and have it published and sold on bookshelves. With your financial support I will have more time on my hands to create comic strips, logos, t-shirts, canvas's, etc to help complete and promote that end goal.
