My right wrist has been in bad bad shape lately, so I’m back to working with my non-dominant hand until I finish a couple rounds with doctors.  Yesterday my personal challenge was fine detail x Ivan Bilibin.

"The only reason I think it’s inaccurate to say that this is the golden age of graphic novels is that implies it isn’t going to keep getting better and better — and it is." - Calista Brill

Me, Raina & my editor Calista talk up a storm about graphic novels & other interesting things!

The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.

 I highly recommend reading the entire article. 
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
1% of protagonists are people with a disability

I never understood why the genre I love so much doesn’t love me back :(

I admit this broke my heart because…me, too.
I have to say that one of the most unexpected and amazing things about Medievalpoc is that I’ve discovered I’m not alone in feeling that way; that there is a whole community out here trying to change that.

This has been one of my biggest gripes with fantasy and more specifically science fiction movies. It turns my stomach that these are idealized projections of the future and people of color do not exist in them, either as meaningful characters— or at all. This is our cultural baseline for the future?
You are kidding yourself if you think a whitewashed dystopia doesn’t read as utopia.

doctor princess is so important

This was my favorite joke from CC 1… Ian nailed Doc Princess’ look in the last panel. I think our notes were “She looks like House”.

Haha rad. This issue was a lot of fun to write… they just kept screaming at each other, we ended up cutting a bunch of material to keep it trim.

Probably the greatest, comprehensive analysis on one of the most important film makers in animation gone too soon, and my direct influence in storyboard/visual storytelling in animation, the late great Kon Satoshi.

Rest in Power, Kon-san!

Wowwwwww.

I’m just writing this last thing because I believe it’s important. (I’m sorry for disappearing, but it’s been a long time coming.)

There is no situation that is made better by violence. Retaliatory violence of any kind counts. Emotional violence counts. It’s very hard to know what the right thing to do is in life. People spend whole lifetimes struggling with that. It’s far, far too easy to hurt someone accidentally. But sometimes it’s obvious something is the wrong thing. It’s important to try your best to do right, even though you’re going to fuck up, a lot. It’s essential.

I believe that people are good. I believe it’s impossible to know exactly where a person is coming from, what’s inside them, what they’ve been through, what they’re feeling, even if you think you know them well. That’s even more true on the internet, when you don’t have the luxury of tone or context. Compassion means reminding yourself of that and trying your best to overcome the visceral reactions you might have because of where you are coming from. The very best we can do as human beings is try to understand and be compassionate towards each other. 

This is meant for a lot of people. If you respect me as an artist, please try to understand me as a person, because my art is the way it is because of who I am. If you respect me as an artist, please think about what I believe. You’re all good people. Please be kind to each other.
