6 days before the deadline, I finally posted my participation in the contest #Draw Me Comics 2020 for the comic festival of Angoulême!!

My challenge: transcend the ugliness to reveal its beauty.

If you like mutant axolotls, this post is for you!

You can also watch the entire sequence on my Youtube account!

Wish me luck!

Inktober 2019 is over !!!

Very happy to have taken up the challenge (on time!), although purists might say that I did not do a job 100% pure ink.

Anyway, I loved mixing different techniques and building this Inktober as a puzzle. I like looking at it as a whole, once all the pieces are all together.

You’ll also find it on my Instagram.


I’m done with black and white for a while now! The next note will be more colorful! 😉

Inktober 2019!

I’m taking part in the Inktober 2019 challenge!

For those who only follow me on this blog, you can take a look at all my Inktober posts on my Instagram account here: https://www.instagram.com/malika_smith_blog/?hl=fr

Here’s a glimpse with the first three themes of days 1, 2 and 3 (Ring, Mindless and Bait):

Unlike last year when I did pure inking, this year I decided to mix everything! Easy marble, ink, digital, pencil…

The level of illustrators is particularly high this year, it’s a challenge I recommend to all! 🙂

Inkly yours,

Malika Smith

Merton Arts Festival Still On!

The  Merton Arts Festival continues until this Sunday.
You can see some of my paintings there. As I know most of you didn’t choose to cross the Channel this weekend, here’s a glimpse for you below:

With PERL, we had a lot of fun doing some fluid art experiments. To be renewed!

Thanks to the framers team for their hard work despite the busy schedule and last minute solicitations, festival oblige!

Be creative!  xx
