For those of you that don’t know the “Like a Girl,” zine is open for submissions! Female identifying artists of any and all mediums are welcome to submit their work. In addition to or in lieu of artwork all women are encouraged to submit any stories they want to share about being a female! There is no theme for this months issue and there is no submission limit – although if a large amount of submissions are received it may need to be narrowed down so feel free to specify your favorites.

Over the past month I’ve received submissions from some really incredible female artists and I can’t wait to continue receiving more! Submit your work and share this with anyone you think may be interested. There is also a Facebook group where you can stay updated about what’s going on with the zine.

So excited for this!

Abstract Patterns

I have a newfound love for working with abstract patterns. This piece is called, “Remaining Afloat,” and it is one of my favorite pieces that I have created thus far.

This digital illustration was created completely in Adobe Illustrator. Through this piece I wanted to portray, through a partially abstract manner, the idea that it is so important to remain positive no matter what is going on around you. I think all of us this past year have felt surrounded by negativity, whether it be through politics or the recent events in Houston and Charlottesville. In times like these it is so important to not only lift ourselves up but to also help those around us remain afloat as well.

Be there for yourself and be accessible and open for those that need you!
