No. 8 on my list of favorite women in history: Anne Frank.

She was the very first woman in history that I remember studying. I also distinctly remember (after reading the diary) thinking that being mad at my parents for not buying me a synthesizer was really stupid.

Anne’s famous diary reminded us all that it was a cruel, unfair world- but that there is hope even in the darkest of times.

(Wait, is that a quote from Lord of the Rings? damn.)

I am having the best time working on my top ten! I think it’s because I love all of these women so much- that some interesting styles and compositions are working their way onto paper. This was done in watercolor and ink.
