Commission by CNN for their #inspirewomen project for International Women's Day 2015. As featured on the CNN homepage, CNN International’s “News Center” show with Isha Sesay, and The Huffington Post.
To celebrate the wisdom of women and to mark International Women's Day 2015, CNN International asked its audience and its journalists to suggest inspirational quotes from female authors, campaigners and leaders. They also drew from interviews from Leading Women, CNN's monthly show that celebrates women at the top of their professional fields. Female designers from across 5 continents were then asked to create an image based on a chosen quote.
I based my image in part on the production art Mary Blair created for Disney in the 50s, in keeping with the fairytale theme.
