We’re thrilled to share the summer poster art for our Summer of Science Fiction & Fantasy reading series! We hold deep gratitude to poster artist Odera Igbokwe, and layout designer Vicki Saunders for their beautiful work.
You can learn more about Odera Igbokwe from their website, as well as their bio here:
Odera Igbokwe (They/Them & He/Him) is an illustrator and painter located on the unceded and traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Odera loves to explore storytelling through Afro-diasporic mythologies, Black resilience, and magical girl transformation sequences. Their work explores the magic of the Black imagination, and responds to the fractures that occur via diaspora and displacement. Ultimately their paintings celebrate joy, mundanity, and fantasy coexisting alongside pain and healing. As a freelance illustrator, Odera works with clients and galleries to create work that is deeply personal, soulful, and intersectional.
We’ll see you at the summer readings! Register for each event here, and remember that they’ll be both in-person and livestreamed to support maximum participation.
