I hope you are having a nice start to Autumn! Even though it's 90 degrees in Michigan, I'm still feeling the magic of my favorite season. Time for cider donuts, leaf piles, and scratchy wool. So. Much. Wool.
Been riding my bike a lot lately, as I just moved to a new city with new ground to discover. It's been a truly awesome way to learn the pathways of my new home, and to get out the stress of work and political rage. But I just gotta vent about one thing! Ladies and gents: please wear a helmet when you ride. No one cares how cute your hair looks as it lightly blows through the wind. It might be one less thing to pack, but it's the one thing you ought to pack! I've heard to many tragic stories to go without one. Hope you'll take to protecting your watermelon too! Here's some cool styles to check out if you're interested in something a little less conventional
Strong women lift each other up. Always. When I created this gif a year ago for International Women's Day, I had no idea how far it would travel or how many friends it would make along the way! Thank you to all the women who inspire me, support me, and give me strength. I hope some of you will be taking the day off today for the #daywithoutwomen, but if you can't, that's cool too! We're united regardless, today and every day. <3<3
After a string of intense drawing days, my current book project is shaping up quite nicely and I am ready to chill this weekend! I been drawing a lot of ladies this week, and hearing from a lot of wonderful women too, who shared my "Lift Each Other Up" gif. It's been truly uplifting to see so many people spread the message of kindness and generosity. So THANK YOU all you ladies for making me feel purposeful! It's, like, pretty damned awesome. PRO TIP: you can create your own army of lifting ladies to fill up your browser window (desktop only) on giphy: http://giphy.com/gifs/cute-feminist-girlpower-3o7abBphHJngINCHio/tile
