Giraffe Girl

My new vector drawing "Giraffe Girl" for my Circus series.

Women are treated like circus animals.
We have to preen and pose and jump through hoops looking perfect our entire lives.
We are valued for our appearance, our uniqueness. How do set ourselves apart and also fit in at the same time?
That is the box we are made to fit into from the day we are born.
We are forever contortionists, twisting our bodies into unimaginable shapes, with no thought for our well-being.
We are malleable like clay, we are flexible to the point of self harm.
