Wakanda Astronautics and Space Agency by Scholastics

I was gonna write a big thing about this, but I think the thing speaks for itself. Dancing about architecture, etc. Three things you need to know:

1. Wakanda is a fictional African country from the Marvel Universe. The mix follows W.A.S.A. from its tribal origins to deep space.
2. Afrofuturism is an aesthetic that combines science fiction with African mythos and fantasy. Think Sun Ra albums, Octavia Butler books, Basquiat paintings, and even Janelle Monáe.
3. This mix is designed around bass and drums. Bring subs or don’t bother.

I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out, weaving together genres into a cohesive, narrative whole.
