Feminist Porn Awards!

So here's a quickie for you in my line of lady-portraits-- I did the cover for the Toronto Eye Weekly highlighting the Feminist Porn Awards. They basically wanted to do a modern-style version of Rosie the Riveteer--in magenta glasses and a bra, holding the award statue. You got it!
The original Rosie:

My version:

Obviously mine doesn't transcend the original iconic piece, but it's my little homage. The colors are a little lighter in my version (since it prints darker on newsprint)...The tattoo was originally going to have info in the little ribbon, but it didn't happen in the end. I chose the axe for the tattoo because the doubleheaded axe was a symbol for the Amazons, and now for feminism and lesbianism. I love secret meanings!
