I did it! This project has become something I am really proud of. I was struggling at the beginning due to lack of likeness in these portraits and choosing women that could be controversial, but I overcame my worries by accepting that the meaning is more important than how technically good these drawings are and that controversial women can still be inspiring. Excuse the cliche but nobody is perfect!

I am also grateful to have such a warm reception towards this little project, and after someone suggesting that I should turn these mini portraits into a small coffee table book I am seriously considering it but since it might be costly I might do a zine style instead to keep the cost down. Let me know in the comments if that is something you are interested in! Thank you.
