Dope Girls is an Atlanta-based zine for female-identifying and non-binary artists. The zine, along with its contributors, tackle the intersection of cannabis culture, feminism, and femininity in an effort to destigmatize the plant. Sale of the biannual zines and related merch help (unofficially) raise money for Planned Parenthood Southeast. Dope Girls aims to develop a global community of marginalized people who champion equal rights, reproductive justice, and productive cannabis use.
Given a short story entitled Inhaling to Breath, I created illustrations to pair with the short story. The couple represented within the narrative is physically and emotionally separated by crippling anxiety. As the story progresses, the two begin to see each other in honest light.
The illustrations were thus translated into risograph prints for issue IV: Sex of Dope Girls.
