Description: From Moscow with attitude. Ink pen and stencils. Entry in the Girl power Contest. © Su Schaefer 2012 From Moscow with attitude.
© Su Schaefer 2012

I created this design at the height of the Pussy Riot affair in Russia, as a pastiche referencing images that use 'girls' as a lure, and various silhouettes that I balaclavaed and subverted (see if you can spot the knitter) to try and turn them, together with strong colors, into an image of strong women. 'Deep hot pink (d8279c)' is a coordinating solid. An alternative colorway is 'From Moscow in mulberry and balaclavas' - with the mulberry and strawberry colors giving it a quite different feel.

Thanks to everyone who commented that it works as a celebratory image of the strength of women, and to Sue Ellen for the suggestion to enter it in Spoonflower's Girl Power Contest as a potentially interesting fabric for older girls' clothing.

It printed beautifully as a fabric (I have poplin yardage that I'm looking forward to sewing and wearing). And I'm delighted that it's being used as one of the pieces in a 'Feminist Quilt'.

Ink pen & stencils, designed as a half-drop, basic repeat.
[Currently set @ Fabric: 450 ppi, Wallpaper: 175, Gift wrap: 450 ppi]

su_g says: Reloading (broken link): Long shot of of yardage printed on cotton poplin (daylight photo). The orange is still quite bright, the pink significantly less so; it is quite a dense print, with all the black elements showing quite dark on the reverse side. Might be a bit brighter in different fabric types.

fireflower says: This is fun ... a little 007 title art, a little La Femme Nikita, and totally sassy fem-mannikins! The graphic style, the graffiti colors, and the action-packed stances of the figures give this design a very high energy level. I'm with Annie on this one ... I hear you roar!
