POST 39: GET MESSY: SEASON OF BRAVE #: COLLABORATE & LISTEN !

So a few weeks back, I announced that I was embarking on a collaboration with the ever inspiring Vanessa Oliver Lloyd. Our zines have now done the air miles and are fully finished collaborated pieces! 


The finished zine! 

Vanessa's theme was 'herstory' and she had filled the zine with oriental papers and images of vintage women. 
I wanted to take this one step further, and being inspired by the recent U.K election,
decided to make the zine into a pro-suffragette and women's rights story.  

Zine layout, page by page 

I included words from a suffragette war-cry anthem and images of modern day women, illustrating that suffrage is not over in the world. 
It's appalling to me that women in certain countries and cultures are treated as second citizens and pretty unbelievable to realise that it was only less 
than 100 years ago that women in Britain couldn't vote!

Head over to Vaneesa's blog to see her creation from my spirit animal zine (it is bold and beautiful!) 
and if you want to know or see more about the project, we both posted an article on the get messy blog.

This has been a great creative experience for me, I feel like it really was the merging of two minds, and when you look at what we both created, it shows.
