In the current political climate, I think it's more important than ever to speak every chance we can about issues of equality. As an illustrator I'm not sure if I can really make that much of an impact but I want to create illustrations and products that promote what I hold dear. And as an all out feminist, gender equality is one of my major passions.
For quite a while, I've been planning to add a line of cute and functional stickers to my product range, and a little while ago, I was able to complete that goal. I have a four different sticker packs, and today I'm going to introduce you to the Girl Gang / Feminist sticker pack (there are also Book Nerd, Crazy Cat Lady and Journal Planner packs).
I have included some stickers using the artwork from two of my pocket mirrors, and supplemented them with new, never before used, watercolour paintings, to create a pack of 8 high-quality kiss-cut, peelable stickers, printed onto a A6 sheet.
These stickers include some of the best known feminist phrases; "Smash the Patriarchy", "Girls Supporting Girls", "Fight Like a Girl" and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun-demental Rights". We also have a "Girl Gang Meet Up" sticker so you can mark in your journal or diary when your next feminist meeting is, and a "Treat Yo Self" cake-themed one for fun (we all need to indulge in a little self-care).
The sales of these guys have actually jumped massively lately; I'm guessing the Women's March has really helped to make them popular!
If you are looking for more feminist illustrations, check out my Girl Gang / Feminist Trio of Pin-Back Badges.
I also want to give a little something extra to you all. I'll maybe use this piece of lettering in the future on products, but for now I want to do what I can as an artist to help the cause (in my own limited way). Download this freebie "Empowered Women Empower Women" digital wallpaper and use it on your desktops, mobiles and tablets to show your support for gender equality.
