NOW THAT WE'VE MET ALL STRETCH GOALS... ANYONE CONTRIBUTING TO THE NASTY WOMEN PACK WILL GET ALL SIX PINS FOR JUST $25!
We need to remind the world that change comes not from violence, vigilantism or taking the law into our own hands. It comes from standing by our beliefs. We need to remember as a generation that we have a voice and we can be heard.
Soft-enamel pins allow for a cool, textured appearance. Each pin will be a minimum 45 mm out of simple necessity. There's a lot of detail to be taken in with each one and the best way to capture everything is to go big.
"Yo! Turns out we've got a secret weapon, an immigrant you know and love who's not afraid to step in it." Let's not forget the great of all American traditions... immigration. We need to not see outsiders as burdensome but an opportunity to continue to grow, to diversify and enrich what we have to offer as a culture.
This black soft-enamel pin will be unlocked once we reach $1,000.
Anyone who contributes to the Nasty Women pack or above will automatically get this pin!
The tendency to focus on a woman's romantic life stems from a tendency to see them as incomplete or an extension of someone else. Woman, as men, should be seen as wholly complete in their value, aptitude and accomplishments, regardless of whom they are attached to. That's to say nothing of the destructive effect that pet names have on the concept of equality, subtly renew old gender roles to bully them into subservience. This pin is to remind everyone that women stand strong as individuals, requiring no one else to validate their strength and potential.
This black nickel pin will be unlocked at $800. Anyone who has contributed to the Nasty Women 3-Pack will receive one of these pins free. Anyone who has contributed $7 or more may add $7 to their contribution to receive it!
UPDATE: Not One Step Back is unlocked! Anyone who contributes to the Nasty Women pack or above will automatically get this pin!
The rights of the LGBT community have come so far in the last eight years. Today, tomorrow, over the next eight years and beyond, we need to remain vigilant that we don't stumble backwards in this respect.
This pin will be on black nickel and feature a multitude of glitter enamels. Was the glitter overkill? I don't know. But it's awesome and had to happen. Anyone who has contributed to the Nasty Women 3-Pack will receive one of these pins free. Anyone who has contributed $7 or more may add $7 to their contribution to receive it.
It's not locker-talk to brag about walking up to women and just grabbing them "by the pussy". This pin reminds people, no matter how famous you think you are, objectifying and assaulting others is not allowed.
This pin will be a silver base to easily capture the white-lining and stitches, to shine against the black base. The Pussy Hat is also a glitter enamel, because black latex doesn't have to be where the fun ends.
Global warning isn't a controversy. It's a fact, not subject to debate. Thanks for "putting America first" but that involves looking after the planet America is grounded on as much as looking after it's businesses and machismo. Every day the importance of ecological priority heightens, to make backwards progress for the sake of commerce is obscene. Earth first, now and always.
This is going to be a black nickel base, which will allow the line work to play nicely, especially in the shades of red.
Was Melania Trump consciously summoning Jackie O. with her inaugural day outfit? Can you believe at the advent of what may the most perilous era in American history we actually wasted time discussing what the First Lady was wearing? Well, the joke's on us, now.
Another black nickel pin, it will make the sketchy-style I employ in shadows retain it's organic feel while shimmering at the right angle.
If you're wondering about my background making pins, here's every pin I've made so far. For those pledging at the highest levels, you'll receive not only the three original nasty women, but every pin seen here... including those which no longer available in my store.
So, how did I get here?
January 21st, my girlfriend and I marched with 3 million other Americans and took in the sights of all the people, all the causes and all the different ways people made their voices heard. People summon the spirit of Princess Leira, a consumate symbol of feminist rebellion. But it didn't end there. All around were signs of how our pop-culture not only seeps into how we define heroism, but defines the actions we take to be heoirc. One woman was carrying a Batman sign, it read "We need you now." It occurred to me, we need heroes who change the world without throwing punches. We need heroes who change the world by believing in something and making their voices heard. I was surrounded by heroes of that caliber. And yet there were so many more who still treat the marchers as a nuisance, people too foolish to realize they were wasting their times. We need to make peaceful demonstration accessible again, remind people it's not only the right of others but ourselves to stand up and speak out. I hope these pins help to normalize that action.
As for me, I'm a writer and artist living in San Diego. Pins are not a new art for me but this round is one I'm particularly proud of. If you'd like to see some of the other pins I've made in the past, feel free to check them out here.
Risks and challenges
As I stated above, these will be my seventh, eighth and ninth pins, whereas normally I would say "no sweat, there's nothing worry about", these are going to be large pins. A large pin will be about 45mm. These will be at least that. The reason this is important is there's a lot to be captured here, the emotion, the energy and, of course, the message. So what does that translate to in terms of challenges? Well, I know manufactured well enough to know if you're not diligent in working with them, sometimes small details fall through the cracks. However, art is made of small details, as we are made of cells, and though it may be a challenge it is one I will work on to success to make sure these pins come out as incredibly as we want.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
