Spring is finally here, and we couldn't be more excited! As grateful as those of us in California are for all the rain we got this winter — hooray for an end to the drought! — it's nice to see the sun again, as well as longer days.
We've still been busy churning out fresh designs, though! In honor of March 14th being "Pi Day" and the upcoming March for Science on Earth Day (April 22nd, 2017), check out the newest addition to our vintage concert poster-inspired series featuring acclaimed scientific hero and feminist trailblazer Marie Curie:
Some cool facts about Ms. Curie:
• She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize
• She was the first person to win it twice — and in two different fields, to boot!
• Despite the xenophobic and anti-feminist climate in her adopted home of France in the lead-up to World War I (she was born in Poland), she personally equipped and operated ambulances to help doctors in the removal of bullets & shrapnel from injured soldiers using rudimentary x-ray machines and other medical equipment she designed — all on her own dime, and never seeking reimbursement.

Peace, love, and tacos,
