The Suffragette by Nemodemos The Suffragette by Nemodemos
Back into commute drawing a bit! These more intricate pieces are more fun to think about, but rushing the details while the train is stopped starts to get grate on you.

"Votes for Women!"

The "official" Suffragettes were early 20th century feminists who often used extreme or even violent tactics in their quest for women's civic rights.

It was only a short jump for me to represent the industrial patriarchy as a shadowed zeppelin, riding the caricature of a "proper" wife. My initial idea had more propaganda-style banners of domestic "bliss", but there was already so much going on I didn't add them.

Thanks!

The continuous sitting down part of the commute is about 40 minutes each way. But this wasn't one sitting :) (Especially since you need to wait for the train to stop to do the details.)

Thanks! Getting the lighting right in pencil sometimes takes me a few passes in places. The people on the train must think I'm crazy. "Why is he coloring the area he's already colored? Who's he trying to fool?" That or they have their own business to worry about and ignore the self-conscious guy with the sketchbook.

This is amazing. I would love to see it on a bigass poster with a nice apocalyptic color scheme. I love how the men looking down from the zeppelin seem confused, as if they're wondering who in the world this funny woman thinks she is.
