MUIJAVAARA is an Instagram account I founded in 2018, where I illustrate significant and inspiring women and marginalized individuals.
The project began as a challenge to draw 100 portraits in 100 days. The project's aim was to refine my style and get more diversity in the representation of women in social media. The account quickly found its audience and nowdays the account has over 15,000 followers and the project is still ongoing.
The individuals in Muijavaara includes historically significant figures, characters from TV shows and movies that have inspired me, and interesting personalities from current events. In addition to the illustration, I try to include a description of the person or make a statement related to a current topic in the captions accompanying the images.
