Riot Woman with Artist Aurora Lady

EAurora Lady is a Los Angeles-based artist and visionary who is not only a bad ass feminist illustrator, stylist, glitter make up artist, and fashion designer, but one of my creative guides. In this conversation we talk about zines as educational building blocks for feminism, discovering punk when we lived in rural places, forging feminist community via Live Journal and how that’s different than Instagram today, making friends in LA (or anywhere) as an adult, and how we “signaled” our feminism and relationship to Riot Grrrl as teenagers and twenty-somethings through fashion, as well as the radical influence of Courtney Love. We also process the resurgent trend of all things 90s and discuss the trap and difficulty of chasing nostalgia. Finally Aurora shares her advice about how to develop your art and what you’re about as an artist.
