18 Empowering Illustrations to Remind Everyone Who's Really in Charge of Women's Bodies

18 Empowering Illustrations to Remind Everyone Who's Really in Charge of Women's Bodies
Image Credit: Carol Rossetti 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. Rossetti's illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. "I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. "I can't change the world by myself," Rossetti said.

When Edward Gorey Illustrated Dracula: Two Masters of the Macabre, Together by Maria Popova “No man knows till he has suffered from the night how sweet and dear to his heart and eye the morning can be.” As if knowing that the great Edward Gorey illustrated a small stable of little-known and wonderful paperback covers for literary classics weren’t enough of a treat, how thrilling it is to know that he also illustrated the occasional entire volume, from classic fairy tales to H. G. Wells’s War of the Worlds to T. Mina Murray Jonathan Harker Lucy Westenra Dr. R. Dr. Count Dracula The gorgeously Gorey endpapers are particularly marvelous: The book also includes some pages from Bram Stoker’s original Dracula manuscript: Manuscript notes and outlines, p. 35 verso b. Manuscript notes and outlines, p. 2 (Courtesy of the Rosenbach Museum & Library, Philadelphia) But the greatest Gorey-goodie of all is the toy theater set: Complement Edward Gorey’s Dracula with a look back at this gallery of the beloved illustrator’s other literary masterpieces.

fork and flower: wild herb gathering remember the crazy chai pear and chocolate pudding tart...? that's when the collaboration (though, in all honesty, we stick to calling it 'playing around', actually) between photographer extraordinaire christine benz and my humble (aspiring food stylist, ahem) self started. by now, we're already two days, several hours of hard, sweaty work and a couple more insights on working together on food into this project. it's been fun, and continues to be. but let me explain what it is that you're seeing here. for now, no recipes (obviously). but some pictures of me (utterly unglamorous, in mornign manière, with a totes naked face, ugh, why do i never manage to jump out of bed earlier when i'm having my picture taken...? what you're still going to see from christine and i: a wild herb foam soup with lady's smock (color blocking in a soup, literally. i'm positive my fashion forward styler friend ki will adore this), a fancy rustic nettle bread (yeah, ouch!) for now, though, happy easter!

#CITYLOVINK #CITYLOVINK presenta: Scott Campbell (y el fin de una temporada) // Written on Feb 28 , 2012 // Arte, Tatuajes La colonia Roma tiene sus historias muy bien grabadas, de alguna manera podríamos decir que esas historias se encuentran marcadas como un tatuaje en la memoria de cada uno de sus habitantes. Una de esas historias comienza en Lower Haight, San Francisco, dónde hace 32 años nació un rebelde llamado Scott Campbell. Scott era el tipo que se juntaba con “los chicos malos” del barrio, y desde ese momento, su trabajo como diseñador comenzó de una extraña forma. No fue si no hasta en el 2005 que su talento lo llevó, después de cuatro años, a abrir su estudio en Nueva York (Saved Tattoo), haciéndolo uno de esos artistas de los que todos quisiéramos tener su arte en nuestro cuerpo. Como parte de la serie #CITYLOVINK realizada por el equipo de NOTTV, este episodio corresponde a la última entrega relacionada con el tema de los tatuajes. #CITYLOVINK presenta: Scrappy Uno

Rose-Lynn Fisher /Topography of Tears The Topography of Tears The Topography of Tears is a study of 100 tears photographed through an optical microscope. The project began in a period of personal change, loss, and copious tears. One day I wondered if my tears of grief would look any different from my tears of happiness - and I set out to explore them up close, using tools of science to make art and to ponder personal and aesthetic questions. Years later, this series comprises a wide range of my own and others’ tears, from elation to onions, as well as sorrow, frustration, rejection, resolution, laughing, yawning, birth and rebirth, and many more, each a tiny history. The random compositions I find in magnified tears often evoke a sense of place, like aerial views of emotional terrain. Roaming microscopic vistas, I marvel at the visual similarities between micro and macro realms, how the patterning of nature seems so consistent, regardless of scale. © Rose-Lynn Fisher 2013-2015 contact:
