Heroes and Inspirations
This was a collaboration with Optimysticals Studios, who create jewelry based on various fandoms such as Doctor Who to western comics. I supplied art for a Kickstarter focused on creating jewelry with portraits of scientists who were heroes and inspirations. However, each and every one of these scientists was a woman.
The kickstarter raised nearly $10,000 on completion, and the tiers for Women of History and Women of Literature were unlocked, allowing Fatima Al-Fihri to be drawn. We have her to thank for the first university in the world.
At right is a prototype of Lise Meitner, who discovered nuclear fission with Otto Hahn, but was passed over for the Nobel Prize resulting from it.
Each of these women helped shape the modern world and it would be unrecognizable had they not been around. It was an honor to draw them.
