The wicked graphic tee illustrations by Amanda Manitach, an artist based in Seattle, Washington, will make just about anyone blush. Made with millennials in mind, there is a youthful air about each artwork, even though the content is certainly rated R. Risky or not, the imagery addresses gender roles and feminism in a thought-provoking way. The fashion-like illustrations revolve predominantly around the concept of penis envy.

Created entirely in black and white with some faint hints of color here and there, the wicked graphic tee illustrations encourage women to bring light to an issue that surrounds them on a daily basis. Yet at the end of the day, they are also incredible pieces of artwork that would find a perfect home in a studio loft or young start up company.
