The Working Proof: Ana Ventura - I'm Fertile
I'm Fertile is a lovely new letterpress print by Ana Ventura, a Portuguese illustrator whose work centers around the natural and the human. I'm Fertile is about love: the different kinds of love that we can have for the people around us, and especially about how big the space for love inside of us can be. Ana chose to pair her print with RestoreNYC, which I think is an especially fitting artist/charity pair. RestoreNYC is a New York City non-profit that provides holistic long-term aftercare services for international survivors of sex trafficking in NYC.
This is a two-color letterpress print on 100 gsm Crane's Lettra paper. The artist's name has been letterpressed into the prints, and each print was numbered by The Working Proof. It was printed by Pistachio Press of Ladies of Letterpress, a collective of women letterpress printers.
