The Babe, The Bitch and The Blue Blood

A show about feminism and fairy tales.

The show is TONIGHT guys!

7pm in MCAD’s main hallway. 

We wish everyone could make it, but for those who can’t be here, we’ll make sure to take tons of pictures at the opening!

Thank you so much to all who were a part of this, we are truly grateful.

Imagine this:
Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.

Imagine this:
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.

Imagine this:
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.

Imagine this:
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.

Imagine this:
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.

Madame G. This is my piece for the The Babe, The Bitch, and The Blueblood Show that is happening at the MCAD Gallery in Minneapolis.

I’ve been wanting to draw her for a while, so the fact that I was asked to do A VILLAIN for the show kinda gave me the perfect opportunity. There are some amazing pieces in the show, so you should check out the tumblr and even go see it in person if you can!

The opening is coming up so soon!!
We’re also pleased to welcome artist Rachel Wingard to our lovely innocent team.
