I embrace the label of bad feminist because I am human. I am messy. I’m not trying to be an example. I am not trying to be perfect. I am not trying to say I have all the answers. I am not trying to say I’m right. I am just trying—trying to support what I believe in, trying to do some good in this world, trying to make some noise with my writing while also being myself.”

About Me

Hi there! I'm Nicole as you might have figured out by now. I'm an artist and illustrator in Brooklyn, NY. I live in an apartment in Crown Heights, BK with my lovely significant other and my even lovelier kitty cat. I'm refraining very much right now from writing 3 paragraphs about my cat, by the way. Shoot me an email if you want to chat cat. By day I'm a Sr. Art Director in the city, but no one cares about that, especially not me, so we'll just move past that part. 

What I Do

Also as you might have noticed by now, I like to illustrate! A little over a year ago I illustrated a feminist poster of female politicians for the Women's March and it was such a hit that I decided to keep it going. Since then, I've been working on illustrating important and influential women, past and present, across different backgrounds and industries. This is an ongoing project of mine, so please, feel free to send me reco's and suggestions for women to draw!

Why I Do It

Some of this should go without saying, but I'm a feminist. Shocking, I know! But not only am I a feminist, as you all should be too, but I'm an intersectional feminist. I believe that all forms of inequality are connected, to fix one we must fix them all, and all are of equal importance. So, my aim is to highlight women, especially women of color, that we know, and some we may not, to educate and inspire others to be as amazing as the women I portray.
