Bad Girls Will Notice!

Girl Noticed is a Nationwide charcoal mural project, and it arrived in Michigan after starting in Florida.  Artist Lori Pratico and and photographer Elizabeth Sanjuan plan to travel all 50 states in 3 years to erect a series of detailed charcoal portraits, created as large exterior murals. Why?  To bring attention and awareness to the important role “the female” plays in our society.

When will they be in Illinois?!

An Animation To Watch!

A odd and wonderful film by Signe Baumane about women and depression and suicide. Baumane may be the animated-storyteller counterpart to Roz Chast the graphic novel storyteller.

It can be rented or purchased. I rented it. http://www.rocksinmypocketsmovie.com

And an interview with the film’s creator.
