You Call This “Women’s Studies”?

Women's Studies

Women's StudiesSo I’m at Barnes and Noble a couple weeks ago just browsing around trying to satisfy my ever-increasing reading addiction by wandering around looking for what I thought was the obvious. I finally had to break down and ask someone where to find books on women’s history. I was directed to the very back corner of the store to a single book case with about 6 shelves of books. However, only the top shelf contained books on women’s history. That’s right – ONLY ONE SHELF!

Who Says Girls Can’t Snowboard?

Girls Can't WHAT? Snowboard

Girls Cant WHAT? SnowboardSnowboarding has become a popular sport among women and likewise it has been a highly requested Girls Can’t WHAT? design. I took a little more time on this particular drawing because I wanted it show some high-flying action action and excitement and yet still capture the “Girls Can’t WHAT?” attitude on her face. Finding just the right model/image to work from proved difficult so I pieced her together from several ideas I had floating around in my head.

As usual, I turned to youtube to get a little inspiration from the 2006 Women’s Snowboarding team…complete with a soundtrack by the Donnas. ;)

Amanda Has a Passion for Bull Riding

Ever since I can remember I’ve had a passion for bullriding and I was telling a couple of friends of mine that it was my dream to bullride. I wanted to pursue my dream and they say to me “you’re crazy you can’t do that! If you were a man it might be possible, but your a woman so that can’t ever happen so get that out of your head.”

Sarah is the Starting Guard on Her Football Team

I came home in the spring and told my parents that I wanted to play football. They looked at me as if I was nuts.

The first day of school I called home and told my mom that I was staying after. The boys looked at me with a very strange expression. It was the first day of school, I had just had my hair hi-lighted and had painted my nails a great shade of teal.
