American artist/designer Kimberly McCaskey is the woman behind this cartoonesque collection. Like many women, McCaskey sometimes is EXTREMELY HUNGRY just before her period. In this premenstrual phase she’s also confused, tired and lacking focus and motivation, but that’s beside the point.
There wasn’t a single image of a hungry uterus to be found on the entire web
Looking for an image that would depict her state of mind, McCaskey relealised there wasn’t a single image of a hungry uterus to be found on the entire web. Apparently, no-one had drawn a ravenous womb before. What she did find, was the website of The Womb Project; an initiative that uses creative arts to raise awareness of the various gynaecological issues faced by thousands of women. Like endometriosis, adenomyosis, PCOS, fibroids, gynaecological cancer, PMDD ( Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder), menopause, infertility and, last but certainly not least, the menstruation taboo.
That initiative was the inspiration for the Hungry Uterus collection. Meanwhile there’s an entire line of merchandise. T-shirts, phone cases, tote bags, pillow cases, stickers and zipper pouches; all with the uterus and her ovary arms, grabbing loads of sweet or savoury snacks. Either cupcakes, cookies and pies, or tacos, pizza and French fries. Because tastes differ. T-shirts come in various colours and models (like this unisex model) and are available in sizes S up to XXL. Price around €22,60.
For sale at various online shops and via hungryuterus.com.
