Carol Rossetti.

Carol Rossetti is an illustrator from Brazil who I just absolutely adore. One of her projects is called The Women Project and highlights the many experiences that women go through. And the project is incredibly intersectional and reaffirming in many ways. Rossetti describe the project saying that:

The Women Project began in a very spontaneous and unpretentious way. My initial goal was just to practice my technique with colored pencils while saying something nice to my friends who already followed my work. When looking for a theme, I opted for intersectionality for being something that I acknowledge as a personal issue. … I don’t believe it’s enough to discuss exclusively the issues that affect a specific group of women. We also need to talk about racism, homophobia, transphobia, classicism, xenophobia and ableism. The fight for equality and respect is very wide and should be inclusive.

Some of my favorite works from this project include:
