100 Days Project

Mallory: 100 days of Heroines

I am greatly inspired by comic books and have a love for creating super powers. For mainstream comics, I would like to see more women featured as lead heroines who have the ability to transform the world. For a 100 days I will be creating a picture and a short excerpt of a heroine and her super power.

Day 40:

Ashanti

Ashanti is an African princess who is fierce and her courage unrelenting. Her spear hits every target within a 200 metre radius.  

There is a beauty in her strength. I wanted to pay homage to African Women who stand tall and proud. As a Maori woman I feel a kinship towards such women - those who uphold ethics and defend a culture that conveys power and authority to women.
