This month we have been celebrating all types of heroes and heroines in light of the Rolemodels Exhibition. Rolemodels features our real-life art colleagues and champions as portrayed in their fantasy alter-ego self portraits. It is a show about legends, personality, and special abilities, as each character comes together to battle in the Rolemodels: Battle for Vyk'Tornaahl.
As this show has got us thinking about some of our own heroes and mentors, we are also reflecting back to a collaborative artist book from last December, Girls: Fact + Fiction. This incredible project is all about the ladies that have shaped the way of history, captivated our hearts in books, and achieved unbelievable feats. They are the ladies we look up to, dream of becoming, and the ones who motivate us to create.
Girls: Fact + Fiction has gorgeous full spread illustrations of Beatrix Potter, Joan of Arc, Julia Child, Lana Del Rey, and Cleopatra as some of our favorite factual women. The fiction side, displays some of the most lovable and inspiring characters such as Mother Nature, Barberella, Amélie, Xena, Hermione Granger, Nancy Drew, and Nausicaa. It is a diverse and epic collection that represents the heroines as well as the 100+ artists that illustrated them.
We are still very proud of this project and thrilled to announce that we will be sharing the book this weekend at the Craft'za Convention! You can check out the limited edition book in person and page through the beautiful pieces.
