A handful of quotes

(...women have 2 choices...)
You're either a feminist
or a masochist.

Gloria Steinem

(...on where to begin with making the world a better place...)
Be the change you wish
to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi

(...on troubles...)
What you resist, persists.
Carl Jung

This illo is part of a hallowe'en handout I made about the un-truths about dairy and chocolate (you know, how commercial dairy is horrible for your health and chocolate is made using child slave labour, that sort of thing.)

Lollipop girl

Ah, memories of going to those old-fashioned candy shops where huge jars were filled with colourful candies of all kinds! My favourite flavour was always CHOCOLATE! Barring that, my second choice would be... CHOCOLATE! Or orange or lemon or cinnamon but don't tease me with the cruel pointlessness of grape, mint, cherry or banana. I am happy to say that in my adulthood my palate has become more refined over time. Now I'm quite content with exotic scents of cardamom and ginger and plums and blueberries. Oh, and CHOCOLATE!
