What does it mean to be a woman? We love this series of beautiful watercolor sketches by Jay Crosby. It went viral on tumblr a couple of years ago, but the message is timeless.
Is our womanness defined by our body parts or lack thereof? Is it defined by the color of our skin, the texture of our hair, the inches on our waist, our age, or our lifestyle? Or is it something more intangible?
In Crosby’s own words: “I wanted to make a simple collection of beautiful women in watercolor, so I did just that. Decided to add the accompanying text to give it a voice. My intent was not to abolish every stereotype, but to simply illustrate women of varying personalities, body types, ages, and ethnicities. Every woman is beautiful!”
