"Electric Griot" is a series of illustrations I've developed that highlight our power to overcome obstacles and grow stronger from our struggles. It challenges participants to confront, explore, and embrace their own inner struggles with identity and purpose as a means to attain true happiness and peace of mind. The term “griot” is borrowed from the West African oral history tradition that honors the precious value of our life stories, and “Electric Griot” represents a person that we can all become – one that is “an open book”, full of understanding, peace, love, and triumph.
