More Bad Ass Women – Women’s History month

Since I am making the decision to finish up some work that is on my plate that needs to be done, and I needed to take a break from my series “Who is She?” focusing on women’s history month figures I wanted to post some of my favorite ladies who I’ve drawn over the past two years or so. I’ll be back with more. Please celebrate and share art about women in the past and present who are making history. Our boys and girls need to see it.
