Feature Friday: Joanna Thangiah
As the weather in Philly is warming back up, I've spent more time wearing one of my favorite dresses. The pattern is called "Summer Fruit" and it was designed by Australian feminist illustrator Joanna Thangiah.
She designs lots of patterns like these that you can order on tote bags, bathing suits, t-shirts, crop tops, dresses and more from her StoreEnvy -- all made-to-order and available in a range of sizes and styles. All of her patterns and slogans are playful and unabashedly feminist.
She also makes figurative illustrations, almost always of fat women delivering their opinions about stigma, mental health, sex positivity, and other similar topics.
Prints and originals of these are also often available on her StoreEnvy or by direct inquiry on her Instagram. She also sometimes has pendants, brooches, pins, and hand embroidered pieces you can check out.
Joanna Thangiah uses her art to redefine what's beautiful or "acceptable" and to hold space for people who aren't celebrated often enough, and I am here for it!!
Would you rock a t-shirt with vulva on it?
