Anônimo perguntou: hello, sorry to bother but i just thought i'd let you know that in that last one, with sarah, it should be written trans woman (with a space) and not transwoman since trans is an adjective, just like cis.
That’s correct. I guess my mind was doing something else when I was writing this text… Probably in a place with a lot of chocolate. Anyway, thank you, I’ll change it here! :)

Anônimo perguntou: Hi carol I love your designs they give me inspiration and remind me how diverse women are its fab. Have you done a social anxiety one? I get told a lot that Im just shy or my worries are stupid and to get over it, no one seems to realise that I can't
Yes, this is a very important topic that I will portray. It’s on my list, and it deserves much more awareness. My mother is a psychologist, and she usually helps me with the ones about mental illness, depression and psychological issues that are usually taken for granted.

Not yet, but it’s a really good suggestion! Thanks!

Anônimo perguntou: In one of the illustrations you mentioned a girl choosing Karate instead of ballet. I dance ballet and you can't imagine how hard it's been for me people thinking I'm a "sweet princess" for it. Ballet is discipline, as hard as any other sport, it requires strength, brains and lots of self confidence and bravery. It's feminine, and people makes fun of ballet because of it. There's nothing wrong with liking delicate arts either. Ballet is not a gender convention, it is a powerful way of expression
It is. I totally agree with you. Ballet is something beautiful and very specific, because as you said, it requires a lot of strength, confidence, discipline and commitment. It should be taken a lot more seriously. In Brazil, it’s kind of cultural that little girls (and never little boys) always take ballet classes. This is not only sexist (for excluding boys from this activity) but also a bit disrespectful to ballet itself, because it ignores how powerful it is. It somehow reduces ballet to an all-girls-activity when it’s really a few-people thing. I’m not sure I’ve expressed myself correctly, though. I mean, I was one of the many little girls who had ballet classes because I was taught it was something all girls could do and should like. And nowadays it’s just so clear to me that, even though I love watching it, it really wasn’t for me. At all.

Anônimo perguntou: Do you have a particular license for your beautiful works? I'd love to print and share physical copies with others.
I’m working on an online shop that should be ready very soon! :)
