Warrior-esses

Fundraising project for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

"1 in 9 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime in Ireland. 680 pass away annually. When we talk about those who grapple with breast cancer, we take for granted just how much of a fight goes in. This project is a celebration of all the incredible women who battled (and are still battling) breast cancer. "

Warrior-esses is a limited edition linocut and letterpress print: hand-drawn, handcut, (type) handset and handprinted in the Distiller's Press at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin.  It depicts four of the greatest warrior-esses in history and pop culture: Countess Markievicz, Wonderwoman, Joan of Arc and Athena. 

Prints were sold online at warrior-esses.com. All proceeds from sales went to Breast Cancer Ireland. All prints were sold and raised €2.600.
