I am a digital painter, and I’ve got two projects in mind that I want to work with.
One, which I’ve come to Feministing with before, was the concept of pin up and if that could be turned into something feminist. I’m still going to pursue that route, but I’d also like to have something more photo-realistic on the side — which is why I want to paint prominent feminists in the world. Ideally these people aren’t necessarily the face of feminism, such as Gloria Stenium. A good example, and what will probably be my first project, will be a portrait of Lisa Edelstein (aka Cuddy from House), who is apparently pro-choice, and I didn’t know that (although I love her character). See here.
Also, Mariska Hargitay is another woman I’d like to paint. I’ll also paint Kathy Griffin after reading her book, and witnessing the whole pap smear thing.
I would greatly appreciate any other suggestions. I am having a huge brain fart. : )
