Shape & Situation: Gráinne Mhaile
Ooo look, exciting. The second issue of the Inspirational Women Poster Book from the brilliant Melanie Maddson of Colouring Outside the Lines fanzine.My contribution to the first issue was a poster dedicated to the beauty, mystery and wit of Dolly Wilde mentioned here. For this issue, I've traveled (sailed to be precise) back in time, way back into my own familial heritage to pay homage to a relative of mine, Granuaile, the Pirate Queen. She is also know as Gráinne Mhaol, Gráinne Mhaile, Gráinne Ni Mháille and Grace O'Malley. I only have anecdotal information about this aunt of mine, but knowing I have pirate blood in me is enough.
