Carol Rossetti – WOMEN

This is one of the reasons I love facebook and can’t quite give it up because I come across amazing things like this from the various pages I follow. This is the amazing work by Carol Rossetti, so simple yet so powerful! I wanted to share on the blog because I felt it so fitting and something a lot of woman will relate to. Also the illustrations are just too KICK ASS not to share.

    Yes, Yes, Yes! This is pure WIN!!! I hope one day we see these posters in commercials and billboards. Enough with stereotyping, discriminating, double standards. No matter how we are, what we do or what we look like, as long as we are happy and being true to ourselves then screw it! We are beautifully unique and we should always celebrate it ❤

  2. These are truly beautiful. As one illustrator to another I say “I LOVE YOUR WORK CAROL ROSETTI.” And as one woman to another I say “I LOVE YOUR WORK.” Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful wonderful illustrations.

  3. This is just gorgeous, great images, thanks FB (occasionally) and thanks for your post.

  4. This is also why I can’t give up facebook even though I want to. That said — I found YOU and this through WP freshly pressed (congrats) so maybe I don’t need FB after all. Loved this. 😉

  5. I so agree with all these! I have body hangups being to tall, which is why I started my blog. If you have a chance, browse through my ‘Tall Talk’ category for inspiration. 🙂

    Un superbe travail sur l’individualité.
    J’ai le droit de manifester qui JE suis sans tenir compte de ce que TU penses.

    Very real and not the usual but a -to me at first- odd perspective…Im learning im learning..=D

  9. wow, awesome work, great illustrations ;), I love the lyrics,
    greetings from KW, naturkaddyart

  10. Carol: Your artistry is beautiful and your words even more so. We need to celebrate women as being much more than their physical appearance and beauty IS in the eyes of the beholder.

    I don’t reblog posts that have been Freshly Pressed much because I figure they don’t need the exposure, but if you haven’t seen this, you should.

  12. It’s summer, so wear what’s cool and comfortable. If snobs object, let them look the other way. And if you can’t steer your wheelchair through the sand, bring a toboggan and an Alaskan Husky.

  13. So dump Facebook and sign up for Stumble or Diaspora*. These choices are so much better than Facebook that there isn’t even a contest.

    Wow, really powerful images. It really made me think about how many women, myself included, worry about the opinions of others. As a mother of a young girl it pains me to think of her feeling unhappy because she feels the need to please others, or holding back from pursuing her dreams to fit into social conventions. Thank you Carol for sharing! Your artwork, and inspirational words are beautiful.

  15. Well I gave up FB, but does it matter ?! thanks to you I get to see the important stuff anyway! Many women and girls desperately need this message.

  16. I agree with you entirely , I hate Facebook for all the trouble it causes and it’s superficiality but I’ve tried temporarily closing my account and opening accounts for other social media sites & have thought the sites don’t go near deep enough so have re – opened my account but don’t add anything to my profile and don’t comment on anything anyone else posts so I don’t get involved . I’m just using it to follow things I’m interested in.

  17. These pictures should be posted more in the media. They’re all so encouraging. No woman should have to limit herself in order to fit the expectations of others. The artwork is simple and elegant enough to prove a perfect point.

  18. The ilustrations are nice and the idea of taking about some issues is great, but those weight issues are just anoying. We are what we eat.
