“Artists too have their myths. The lies told to artists mirror the lies told to women. Be good enough, be pretty enough, and that guy or gallery will sweep you off your feet, to the picket-fenced land of generous collectors and two and a half kids. But, make the first move, seize your destiny, and you’re a whore.”

This artist is incredible, covering Guantanamo Bay, Sex Workers, Occupy, and Syria by illustrating the tar out of ’em. DIY artist, illustrator and now [VICE] journalist, she draws  where cameras aren’t allowed…the under-reported, the disenfranchised, the hard to get to.

Sex Workers Video:

“A woman’s beauty is supposed to be her grand project and constant insecurity. We’re meant to shellac our lips with five different glosses, but always think we’re fat. Beauty is Zeno’s paradox. We should endlessly strive for it, but it’s not socially acceptable to admit we’re there. We can’t perceive it in ourselves. It belongs to the guy screaming ‘nice tits.”
