Artist's Description

The Day 18 illustration of the #100daysofqueerwomenandfemmes project is complete! I was so happy when Crystal Hawkinshttps://www.instagram.com/consciousmothering/ submitted the photo for this illustration. (FYI the photo was taken by the talented Stephanie Stefanik https://www.instagram.com/stephstef610/ who was the model for Day 10 of the project. I love when things come full circle.)⠀

To learn more about Crystal, check out her website. This blog post hit me right in the feels: “The transition into motherhood was beautiful, but it’s also a lot of emotional work. And one thing women, especially women of color, have to do is hide their suffering. … … I’ve learned that one of the best things I can do for my daughter is to give her language for her emotions from a young age. To encourage her to cry when she’s sad and smile when she’s happy, and to never be afraid to be honest about what she feels inside. That vulnerability is not a sign of weakness, but of immense strength.” Read the rest of the post here: https://bit.ly/2I7rqyG
