"Sociologists use the term “androcentrism” to refer to a new kind of sexism, one that replaces the favoring of men over women with the favoring of masculinity over femininity. According to the rules of androcentrism, men and women alike are rewarded, but only insofar as they are masculine (e.g., they play sports, drink whiskey, and are lawyers or surgeons w00t!). Meanwhile, men are punished for doing femininity and women… well, women are required to do femininity and simultaneously punished for it."

I think the ‘women are required to do femininity and simultaneously punished for it’ bit sums up 90% of sexism in one sentence.

Feminist Art Friday Feature: Lee Krasner

Abstract Expressionist Lee Krasner is best known for her beautiful and deeply powerful collages and  gestural works. You’ve probably heard of her famous husband, Jackson Pollock, but did you know his wife was another powerful and influential force in the AbEx movement? 

Born in Brooklyn, NY, Krasner began studying art at a young age studying at The Cooper Union at the National Academy for Design. She went on to work for the WPA Federal Art Project before going on to study under Hans Hoffman, another famous abstract expressionist. At a time when the work of women was severely under-valued, Krasner’s presence in the art scene was unique but her career was nonetheless often overshadowed by her husband’s. 

Since her death in 1987, Krasner remains one of the most important artists to have emerged from the New York School and a pioneering force in the Abstract Expressionist movement. As such, she is one of only a handful of women artists to have ever had a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at. 

Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)

This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D. 

Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:


here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:


I hope these helped

I’m just gonna put this one on standby

for when I start my senior film!
