During childhood, it was difficult to find representation in everyday items. When it came to cards, my family had a very small selection of black greeting cards to choose from. In 2018 I started Aziza Illustrates to fill the gap, producing products featuring Black people. Every card is a piece of artwork designed to reflect the warmth of our community. Aziza Illustrates has also collaborated with other businesses, creating patterns, illustrations, logos and much more! The name Aziza means cherished, precious and beloved. I hope you will feel this way when you give or receive a product from Aziza Illustrates

Chiemeka Nicely is an Afrofuturist writer who meshes reality, from African culture, sciences such as Astrology to speculative fiction with a desire to convey the human experience. Writing is a tool she uses to express herself, to observe and record reality in its many facets, crossing time and space re-envisioning the past and the present in the future.
With an active imagination she hopes to spark the minds of her readers, to turn ideas into reality as well as challenge them to identify parts of themselves within her characters. To rise and BE free in their expression; to BE represented much wider than mainstream society. To BE their most authentic selfs and BE the masters of their reality in which they are the creator and the student of life.
Her debut novel The Masterpiece, book 1 in The Shadow I Cast series is an introduction to her Nicelyverse bridging the figurative with the literal enhanced with her dreams and intuition. She starts off with characters that are on their journey to discovering themselves, their world and the nature of the universe.
Her business Nicelypublishing aspires to promote Black excellence from Black children to adults to be proud of where they came from and where they are going.
Nubiana Media’s objective is to create positive black characters in children’s books to redress the lack of diverse representation. Our books range from stories to poetry collections and motivational books, all using poetic rhyme.
