Hi I’m Joey I’m an artist and a badass woman last year I made this awesome badass women calendar featuring 12 incredible women including Sister Rosetta Tharpe Dolores Huerta Rachel Carson Michelle Maxine Waters Laverne Cox Eartha Kitt
this project is so fun for me because I get to do a lot of research about badass women and then I get to look at their badass faces while I draw them anyway I’m very excited about the 2019 badass women calendar I’m really trying to include a diverse group of women and hopefully several that you didn’t already know about or didn’t fully comprehend to the sincerity of their awesomeness my intention from the beginning of this project in 2016 was to lift up especially women of color, queer women folks who traditionally haven’t been celebrated in textbooks.
if you want a sneak peek at the 2019 calendar we’ve got Tammy Duckworth, Carmen Rupe, Berta Cáceres, Nellie Bly, and more something new about the calendar is that instead of having a little hole for you to hang it I’ve included this clip so at the end of 2019 when you’re putting up your 2020 calendar you’ll have 12 beautiful prints that you can frame or hang up and there won’t be a hole in it One last thing, I have been so blown away by the support for this calendar the last two years and I would love to do something with that momentum. I’m activist and I do personal work to address racism and sexism in my life so this year I’m donating a percentage of profits from the project to an organization that specifically supports women of color in the US. I just want to say thank you to all the people who supported this project, people who bought a calendar every year, people who have sent me links about badass women, people who’ve encouraged me as an artist and a businesswoman I feel so grateful to be doing something like this and so excited to see it grow
even if you can’t order a calendar right now it totally helps for you to share the link, follow me on Instagram ask your mom to order you one or ask your favorite local shop to stock it and just you know keep being a badass thank you so much and if you want to find out more you can check out thebadasswomen.com
