Gretel from Hansel & Gretel

My version of Gretel where she becomes obsessed with desserts and traded her brother’s life to the witch in order to stay at the Candy House LOL
Here’s my Sailor Moon piece for Jenn Woodall’s Moon Power zine.
This piece makes me so happy. Thank you for your awesome work, Aleks!
“Many of my movies have strong female leads–brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a saviour”
i hate all the text posts on here like ‘just be nice to everyone !!!!!(◕‿◕✿)’ fuck that i don’t have to be nice to every person and i don’t have to respect everyone
For those of you who criticize Janelle’s signature monochromatic look.
From her speech on “Black Girls Rock”:
“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.
This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” - Janelle Monáe
