I had a lot of fun with the hipster/street clothes Jupiter I did so I thought I’d try my hand at Venus!  I figure she’d wear a sweet cat dress.  Transparent .pngs for dragging fun!

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

Oooh. I reblogged a partial version of this recently but I didn’t know how many more there were! I LOVE these!

This is absolutely Beautiful

Curvy Divas

A series of three fabulous plus size girls commissioned by Diva’s Curves Shapewear Compression Garments. Diva’s Curves

I have always believed that women of all ages are BEAUTIFUL regardless of their body shape, size or color. 

As a fashion & beauty illustrator, I have painted so many slender girls over the past few years for client’s work and personal portfolio. When I was contacted by Sayed of Diva’s Curves to create some illustrations of curvy plus size girls, I was so excited and happy!!! I have enjoyed creating this project profoundly! A huge thank you to Sayed for offering me this wonderful opportunity! I’m looking forward to working with more plus size apparel designers and brands in the future~!

Remember, there’s beauty in everyone and everything around us!♥

Wishing you a wonderful day!:D
