Joan Of Arc Was Not Afraid
My Favorite Joan of Arc quote ( an some time personal mantra) is:
"I am not Afraid. I was born to do this."
Of course she probably said it in French and it likely sounds even cooler that way.
It is a killer quote. At the Bazaar Bizarre I sold a belt that had the words stamped onto it. I brought tears to the eyes of the woman who bought it. It sounded like she was mounting a battle all her own.
I bought a fantastic set of old children's reference books at the thrift store and was excited tosee there was a short section on my latest obsession..as I read, I experienced a bit of a time warp cultureshock.
This paragraph in particular was astounding to me:
I found it so surprising, I decided to make the T-shirt above.
I call the shirt "Joan Of Arc was So Hot."
The small blue patch is the paragraph from the book.
The purple is a portrait of Joan. The sleeves were recycled.
The flames at the bottom are lino block print and the yellow print says" Joan of Arc is so Hot."
And so she was.
