Apologies for the automatic linking from Wordpress in the previous post, it’s horribly formatted and shows no pictures. Here’s the pictures to go with the announcement for the Riot Grrrl anthology I’m working on with lots of awesome contributors! All info so far can be found here.

Exciting!

Announcing a new comic project!

Shocking Pink was a feminist zine put out by a collective of young women in London. It was published in the late 1980s to early 1990s described as a ‘radical magazine for young women’. The magazine predates riot grrrl era zines of the 90s, expertly blending serious feminist politics with sassy school girl fun. Read the collected issues of Shocking Pink here.

Cool Science Chicks Pre-1800?

coolchicksfromhistory:

Thinking of doing a series about early women in science, pre-1800 or so.  Maybe a little into the 1800s, but skipping over Marie Curie and Ada Lovelace because they’re pretty much the only old timey science and math women anyone knows.  Only ten names in mind so far.

Any suggestions?

“This flyer, a pre–Riot Grrrl ‘manifesto’ that was later repurposed for the minizine Riot Grrrl, is the first image in the book. Kathleen told me she made it in 1989, when she was volunteering at Safeplace, Olympia’s long-lived domestic-violence shelter and advocacy organization. Designed so that it could be folded up into a small rectangle with the word trust on top, this flyer was both a secret invitation and a public announcement, much like Riot Grrrl itself.”

We’re back

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the lack of things happening on this blog! I basically spent over 6 months working two jobs and was so impossibly busy I barely had full days off. But! I’ve now gone freelance as an illustrator, and though it’s going to be stressful in its own right, I’ll have some time to dedicate to this again.

So, keep the submissions coming! I’ll probably be working on another physical zine later this year, which will be curated. But for this Tumblr, anyone can submit so go on ahead! I’m sure there’s loads of you who want to share your Heroines with the world.
