A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.”
The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services.

How the crap can you make those kinds of panels? Does it work with circles/ellipses too?
Honestly I’m probably not using the panel tool as efficiently as possible, but I’m only using it as a rough framework to lay things out because I ultimately ink the panels by hand to make them look less mechanical. I don’t know how to do ellipse panels really because I don’t use them so I’ve never bothered trying to learn. anyway, this is roughly how I lay out Platinum Black pages;
Start with a new page with safe area cutoff
Drop in the thumbnail
select the “rectangular frame tool
Draw a frame in the safe area
Select Divide Frame Border
Roughly cut up the page along the panel lines
Hold “ctrl” and click on the panels to use the sliders and binding boxes to fiddle with their size and placement
Once I’ve gotten them how I want I hold right click on the layer the get the rasterize option
Then I can use the line tool and eraser to futz with panels that aren’t overlapping the way I want.
Then I ink the panels by hand to make them look a little less mechanical
