featured shop: kleinemaus featured item: hand-painted illustrated tattooed art doll, ‘polly’
a little while ago, i featured one of kleinemaus’ ‘everyday achievements’ prints. the seller, michelle, reached out to me in thanks and to let me know that the shop would be back up soon. boy, am i glad that i revisited — i’m a huge fan of the feminist vibe here, so i’ll be featuring a short series of kleinemaus items now.
my first feature shows off one of michelle’s hand-painted art dolls — this one is named polly and has a bunch of rad tattoos!! click through to view some pics of the awesome details on this pretty lady :)
Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
