In the month of September, Orange County Girls and Womxn of Color began their logo competition to depict the amazing space local young womxn of Orange County are creating for each other. This past Monday, GWoC was able to vote a logo in to represent the initiative. It was a very difficult decision to choose between beautiful artwork from local womxn of color. However, we are happy to present Orange County Girls and Womxn of Color’s new logo and artist behind the masterpiece! Statement from Leyna Nguyen, the artist behind our new logo. I am a self-taught digital artist since the age of 11-12. I began on a website called deviantART (my account is private). Obviously being young didn’t stop me from trying to make something out of my doodles. I kept practicing during my free hours; which eventually became a daily routine. I begged for a drawing tablet by the time I was 13 and began to make profit from commissions (for other people online) ever since. It was a very long, independent process to get to where I am today and even now, I am still working to improve my skills as an amateur artist! I hope to take this hobby and create a career out of it in the future. About the Author
