drawings

The drawing series started in 2011 and were posted daily on Facebook, as a way to test the efficieny of the platform for art projects. They are derived from the drawings of my childhood, and address diverse issues such as the role of artists, gendered interactions, historical inadequacy or prejudices, and feminism.

Some of the drawings have been or will be made into prints or flags.
