MEANING BEHIND THIS COLLECTION
EMEJOTA says (in Spanish), “I drew some of the most popular illustrations from my collection called The 99, which was inspired by different personalities and a way of expressing what you think and feel! These designs aim to remind you of positive things that "we know" are true but we do not always tell ourselves or others. I want you to see your fave design and say “yes, I’m worthy” or “yes, I can do it” and to inspire you to achieve your goals.”
