a daily deviation? wowza! i am so thankful for to have nominated it, for featuring and a big thank you to my partner in crime for bring them to life with her amazing coloring!
and we got showcased on BEST ART EVER (This WEEK) over on ComicsAlliance.com - [link]
and I were asked to contribute to the New York Times GLBT & Aliies Network's Gay Pride Celebration.
There will be 10 posters on display for the month of June in the buildings cafeteria. Each poster will show a variety of categories like Entertainers, Trendsetters, Politicians, and Power Duos to name a few. For the first time, Comicbook Characters will be added to the mix. And Danielle and I are honored to have been asked to participate and provide our art.
Each poster will have a list of at least 5 people in each category who has made an impact on the GLBT community. Our board ranges from mainstream to indie comics, a range of the community and all honored for their achievements:
Karma - One of the first openly Lesbian mainstream comicbook characters and for being a mentor/teacher to a new generation.
Phazer - Critically acclaimed Gay indie character praised on how well the character was written and for being an adoptive father/mentor for a group of kids who lost their parents.
Mystique - Iconic Bisexual character in mainstream comics. She is known by many, including people who don't read comics.
Northstar - First openly Gay superhero in mainstream comics.
Batwoman - First openly Lesbian character to have a critically acclaimed on-going series and the first GLBT character to wear an iconic mantle.
These characters were chosen and we were happy to draw/color them. We were already asked if we would like to participate next year and after seeing the first few of these, we were asked to contribute to 2 other boards this year.
We he have Shatterstar and Rictor for the Power Duo board (both bisexual men in a gay relationship)
and Solstice from Teen Titans for the board focusing on Allies to the GLBT community
We can't wiat to get all the art out there and displayed.
We hope you all like the art.
