Little girls are better at designing superheroes than you are

“Little girls are better at designing superhoroes than you are” is a part-time project of California based artist Alexandria Law.

Of the project she says: “Kids are more impressionable than you, but kids can also be less restricted by cultural gender norms than you. Kids are more creative than you, and they’re better at making superheroes than you. This is a mini art project where I draw superheroes based on the costumes worn by little girls.”

It’s practically tragic that there are so few opportunities to play with gender norms the way we did as kids, when we didn’t think of them! (Unless, of course, you do drag!)
