Domonique Brown works as a marketing manager from home but also has a side job that earns her up to $267,000 per year. She has been drawing since preschool, according to the California-based contemporary pop artist. According to her, she had always desired to sketch but had no idea how she would be able to do so as an adult.

She wanted to be a graphic designer and work in advertising or marketing when she was in high school. She later earned an associate degree in graphic design, a bachelor’s degree in public relations, and a master’s degree in marketing. Although the pandemic was terrible to many company owners owing to job and revenue losses, it provided her with the opportunity to pursue her art profession. Due to time constraints, she was compelled to start her own business in addition to her five-to-nine employment.

“I was able to open my own online store and put all of my art prints up. it’s kind of a dream come true, because I am able to be an artist. But I still do like the fact that I did my education in marketing. Me having a nine-to-five allows me to still practice what I went to school for, she told Framebridge.

DomoINK was founded by her in 2020. According to CNBC, the name was inspired by her early experiences as the only Black girl in her class, her father going out of his way to find a store that had images of Black families on greeting cards, and her parents purchasing Black art prints from dealers because nearby retailers did not have them.

Brown’s work primarily depicts famous historical personalities, and she describes it as her means of educating people about the achievements of Blacks in all walks of life. “I’ve had a number of customers write to me and say, ‘I hung up my Basquiat on the wall,’ and they didn’t even know who Basquiat was,” Brown, who creates her drawings, said.

“I feel that my art is starting a conversation in the world.” Many historical personalities, such as Martin Luther King, are being forgotten or pushed away as time passes. We recently completed a mural of Martin Luther King for my job, and someone mistook it for Will Smith. Strange really. “I know who they are because it’s my culture, but I’m not sure if people outside of it are familiar with these people,” the 28-year-old told Framebridge. Brown has since worked with Target, Disney, and the Los Angeles Lakers.
