Her name is Kelly Malka and she is an illustrator and designer from Los Angeles who deals with themes such as equality and freedom of expression with colors and pencils.

Found wandering around on Instagram, Kelly Malka‘s cartoon style combined with strong and deep themes impressed me. In fact, behind the colors, clothes and faces of hundreds of women she depicts are hidden messages related to themes more than actual. The acceptance of oneself and one’s body, the freedom to choose, equality between men and women, the mysterious and terrible world of mental illness are just some of the topics touched by Kelly’s pencil. 

The artist from Los Angeles who moved to San Francisco manages to take some sometimes cumbersome topics, dry them to the bone and give them a new and original shape, which unconsciously leads us to address and reflect on a problem.
