Personal Projet 2016
The summer leading up to my wedding I was feeling very conscious of my appearance, and the expectation of svelte and soft femininity. This, combined with the misogynist cultural climate of the ongoing presidential campaign filled me with rage and frustration. The feminine figure I relate to is STRONG. She is courageous, compassionate, complicated, and filled with purpose. I drew these illustrations as an outlet for my anger, and an expression of my relationship with femininity and feminism.
