In June 2018, Collectionzz + Pearl Jam commissioned Tara McPherson as part of a charitable series in which they collaborated with artists on illustrations inspired by band lyrics, and then donated the profits from the release to the charity of the artists’ choice.

"After reading the lyrics for Pearl Jam's poignant anthem 'Why Go' I was taken with the character's strength in fighting the system and the status quo. I feel she is an icon of strength, and I wanted to illustrate her independent spirit. I see parallels between scratching letters into walls and writing/tattooing words across your chest. There is also this alternate universe hinted at through the heart shaped hole in her chest, creating a sort of portal to an alternate dimension, maybe where one’s mind would go when trapped in an isolated place. The title is a reminder, a mantra, for women everywhere going through any rough spot that life throws at you... YOU ARE STRONG." -Tara McPherson

McPherson's powerful artwork resonated with everyone for its incredible message of strength and resilience. This highly sought after art print was also featured prominently on Season 3, Episode 2 of HBO’s award-winning drama Succession.

In 2022, with overwhelming collector requests, Collectionzz released a second edition of You Are Strong which sold out immediately. We are proud to present Tara’s personal Artist Proof’s of the new color ways to celebrate this year's International Women’s Day on March 8th, 2024.
