The Greenpoint branch of the Brooklyn Public Library was looking for an artist to paint a mural earlier this year. I submitted this… but they passed. I can’t wait to see the winning project, there are many great mural artists in the area. It would be fun to paint a piece of public art in my neighborhood, perhaps another time!
N. B. The second image in the post is a rendering of what the concept would have looked like on the wall, it’s not an actual photo!
Trip City is having a special promotion this weekend to celebrate Free Comic Book Day! By clicking the image above, you’ll find an excellent list of all the webcomics available at Trip City. Granted, these comics are available for free all year round but now’s a good time to check out some you might have missed between readings of official Free Comic Book Day offerings.
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
“A Pew Research Center survey conducted Oct.-Nov. 2012 found that many library patrons are eager to see libraries’ digital services expand, yet also feel that print books remain important in the digital age.”
See, patrons use the library for more than a bathroom and a video store replacement.
