Krista Suhis creating craftivist art, feminist apps, and books that change the world

You get 1 post a month from me (but psssst... it's really more like 10 posts a month! I like to underpromise + overdeliver). Get insights into my wacky mind and let that encourage your own creative flow!
3 posts a month (though I usually do more! Think: 30 posts/month). Sample topics: how to network even if you're an introvert like me, how to make work fun, how to hone in on your purpose in life, how romcom story structure is helpful in real life, nail polish color names.
The above plus a sneak peak of upcoming projects and my behind-the-scenes processes at least once a month. See how I pack for trips with my very-detailed planned outfits (including which pair of Spanx lol), peek into my google spreadsheets systems and get snaps of my current whiteboard brainstorming. Also see which greeting card designs didn't make the final cut, and get fascinating insights into the details of kristasuh.com no one else knows.
I wear many hats: the Pussyhat of course! I am also...
*a self help author, specializing in feminist creativity + activism
*a YA fiction author, specializing in creating Asian American representation in stories our teenagers and teenagers-at-heart read
*a screenwriter, specializing in romcoms about AMBITIOUS women (enough with the movies and tv shows about slacker guys, seriously :) My work has been optioned by Fox, sold to feminist comedy production companies, and has led me to some of the coolest friends ever!
*an Artist (teehee notice the capital A): My work has appeared in Art Basel Miami, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and random bathrooms in Los Angeles.
*an app developer - I have a ton of apps in the pipeline, but the ones you probably are most familiar with are the PUSSYHAT EMOJI messaging stickers for iPhone and Android!
*a greeting card designer - I've always been a fanatic and connoisseur of stationery, even starting my own letterpress line in my 20s (which I'll share about in a post!). Now, in 2019, I am releasing an amazing line of cheeky feminist greeting cards - new ones are coming out all the time.
Yes, it's a lot of hats, but no matter which hat I wear, my message is simple:
So many times, I see women WANT something, and immediately talk themselves out of it. Whether it's another slice of cake, justice for rape, a spa day, work-pay equality, a glamorous life, it doesn't matter what it is, the majority of women need to hear, "You can have it too."
Your desires are not OUT there in some ethereal insubstantial place, they are RIGHT HERE, within reach.
I've spent a lot of time learning this, and now I hope to spread the message and my practices to people everywhere so that the world experiences a revolution of peace, joy, creativity, and respect and awe for femininity.
A note about my tiers:
My tiers are named "Encourage Me," "Nurture Me," "Equip Me," and so forth, and this is intentional. The tiers are based on this principle of influence: You cannot influence others without allowing yourself to be influenced as well. Thus, you can not encourage me without allowing me to encourage you. I can not equip others without allowing others to equip me. We can not liberate others without allowing others to liberate us. It's completely humbling, and in my experience 100% true. It is my hope that when you encourage me by joining and giving $3 or more a month, I hope you are also encouraged by my posts, presence, and creations. Instead of the "Follow me" or or "Friend me" actions I see on other social networks, I find these verbs so much more empowering and magical.
I hope you consider joining me on this journey! It's gonna be super fun - this is my laboratory where the brainstorms happen that later flower into the projects you see me put out into the world. And perhaps most importantly, your monthly contribution liberates me from having to answer to patriarchal institutions - that liberation is a huge huge gift for an artist, and allows me to put more art like the Pussyhat into the world, for the people. If you cannot afford to contribute at this time, thank you for at all considering to do so and reading this far! Please check out www.kristasuh.com where I put up as many free goodies as I can.
