Ghana Bound

I have a very good childhood friend, Kelly, who got a job straight out of grad school in Accra, Ghana. When she accepted the position, I promised I'd visit at some point. A year and a half later I am on my way! I'll be leaving March 17 for about 11 days and I can't wait.

To celebrate me finally sending out my visa application, I have put together some cool West Africa-inspired work I found on Etsy-

Handpulled screenprint, "Accra" by breeree

Mixed-Media Collage, "Melody Men, Fishing in Ghana" by JuliaBlaukopf

Photograph, "White Dress" by efia

This is a JHill Design "Places I Have Never Been" print that I will be purchasing it as a hostess present for Kelly since she used to live in Sierra Leone and I know she'll love it. Plus 25% of the print's sales are being donated to the Salone children’s health charity, The Welbodi Partnership, so how awesome is that?
