Rosie the Riveter – a tribute art print by Rob Schwager

In honor of Women’s History month, Rob Schwager wanted to create an art print of an American icon symbolizing strong women. One who epitomizes the hard-working, patriotic women from the greatest generation.
Rob has been wanting to do this print for a long time. He's been slowly working on the drawing for this print and for a sister print, for about two years. Rosie and the dedicated women like her and the contribution they made to the war effort have always held a special place in his heart. They helped build the bombers, which as a child, he became obsessed with. Now that he's grown, their sacrifices have strongly influenced his artwork. As seen in his B-17 nose art bomber panel series. Rob couldn't think of a more perfect icon that symbolizes the true American spirit, which his daughter can look up to and he can have proudly hanging in his own home.

A tribute, to Rosie the riveter.
