Living Legacy

Dian Fossey


This is a piece for Poster Posse 2018 Women’s History Month. They invited several artist to portray women that embody the characteristics of strong, inspirational, fun, powerful women. Whether it’s through their character, actions or words, women that have made a difference and/or continue to make a difference.

I decided to pay tribute to Dian Fossey.

It’s titled “Living Legacy” in reference to the gorillas whose survival Dian struggled to ensure. It’s not exactly a portrait of the primatologist, but a tribute to her work, her courage and her life as something that goes beyond her temporal physical presence in this world. Because her legacy still beats and it’s our responsibility to make sure it stays that way.
