Mama Africa is Busy!

I grew up in the 1970's and my mother had this famous 'women's liberation' poster on the door of the laundry room:

Talk about lineage. The poster was drawn by a woman householder who lived in poverty, the poster became a cult hit, and she happily found a way out of the kitchen to provide for her family. 

Talk about roots. How amazing are all the women-centered philanthropic sustainable initiatives in Mama Africa? Here may be the rebirth place of the new world economic leaders.

I imagine the "housework" of a juggling woman like Mama Africa includes skateboarding. It's a frantic planet, hosting both horrific carnage and exquisite beauty at the same time. Gliding and balancing is a must.

I made Mama Africa's blouse of hand-dyed upholstery fabric sculpted to be form-fitting, with a lining of hot pink silk. The neckline is wide and can be worn many ways and there is a matching skirt.* For skateboarding, Mama wears it with leggings made from a pattern found in the Bilder Atlas, a 19th century encyclopedia of ornament. It matches the populations of the planet she is surfing on.

Hang Mama Africa is Busy! on the door to your laundry room, office, or sacred sex chamber.  Help it become a cult hit for today's women/men/transgender/multi-racial/skateboarding liberationers!

*question from the public: Do you accept commissions to design clothing? yes.
