Hi I’m chels and I’m a self taught digital illustrator. My wonky drawings usually consist of a doll-looking-gal, with a red and pink theme, a funky 70’s styled quote is often floating around as well! Through my art I like to interpret typography to feed myself the words I need to hear, in hope they’ll also reach someone who needs to hear them! I do also enjoy doing non-serious drawings, such as my recreation of chuckie from the rugrats (photo attached) as I love all the nostalgic vibes and get heavily inspired by things I attached myself to in my childhood.
My name is Becky Davies and I’m a digital illustrator based in Aberystwyth Wales! My illustrations surround the themes of feminism, body positivity and just making women feel all round badass! I love to create little narratives through each illustration and let the art tell its story!
Bodies in Lockdown
By Fox Al Rajim
BODIES IN LOCKDOWN
My new photography series explores LGBTQIA+ sex and sexuality under lockdown, during the pandemic. With the rising challenges around mental health, isolation and loneliness, shutting down queer venues, and the strains on our relationships - many of us are finding being on our own challenging. It's no longer a priority for us to play with our bodies, feel sexual or connect with ourselves while we strive to survive.
The series uses Zoom as a way to create a window into a photographic play session in the bedrooms of LGBTQIA+ Londoners. For many its been the first time they've been able to feel "sexy", and sexually empowered - to be able to bring that feeling back into their bodies. Something that we’ve mostly lost during this period.
I'm currently releasing an image a day from the series on my Instagram. The series is not currently featured in other digital and print publications, but is being submitted to others.

My name is Fox Al Rajim, and I'm a trans/agender, queer, Pakistani immigrant to the UK. Additionally as a fat person of colour, with physical disabilities I have a body positive and sex positive approach to my photography.
I've been photographing for 15 years, and once I came out myself, my work and focus shifted to the intersection of queer / LGBTQIA+ experiences, including sex and sexuality. I have been photographing in the queer kink and London drag scenes for the last 5 years. My main goal of my portraits is to make those of us who don't feel beautiful, to feel beautiful and empowered.
I was previously known as Momo (of Momographs) before I came out as Agender and changed my name to reflect my identity. You can learn more about me on this feature at the Sex+ Zine (please note this uses some older information with my previous name).
My name is Elin, but I create my illustrations under the pseudonym Simple Syrup. I’m a Berlin based digital illustrator originally from Australia. I started out creating my art mostly in the form of cartoons and comics as a therapeutic way for me to voice my frustrations with the world through satire and my work and style developed from there. In creating my illustrations I hope to address themes that others can relate to by drawing on my own experiences as a young woman and in doing this promote a message of solidarity and female empowerment.
