We're keen to share an article recently published in Chicago Tribune involving the super talent; Lo Harris!

Headed > Artists Sage Smith and Lauren Harris aren’t letting the social climate dictate their artistry: ‘Not everything has to be about Black trauma or a big statement.'

Lauren (Lo) Harris specializes in motion design, illustration and video production for digital platforms. After graduating from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism in 2018, she's created graphics and illustrations for a variety of brands and publications including, but not limited to, The New York Times, Bustle, Amazon Prime Video and Cosmopolitan. Currently, she works as an associate animator at NBC News, where she produces motion graphics for digital properties such as Stay Tuned,,, and NBC News Now.

The Chicago Tribune is a daily newspaper based in Chicago, Illinois, United States/ Founded in 1847, it remains the most-read daily newspaper of the Chicago metropolitan area and the Great Lakes region.

As part of this piece, Lo added that she saw a lot of non-Black artists who became famous for producing art about Black pain during the early weeks of protests, people who neglected to acknowledge Black artists who were doing art, but getting less attention.

A very interesting read for your weekend! Link here
