These comics have keeped me entertained for about 6 hours now … I owe these comics a lot

Most of the questions I get are on my process and brushes, so I figure I may as well do it properly and make a real process post to share! My process can vary a lot from image to image but this is how I generally approach doing character work at least.

I use pretty basic brushes. A hard opacity round brush, something with a little chalky grit to it and a soft edge brush. The textured one really doesn’t matter to me that much, it’s just there to provide some noise and edge control where I need it. I feel like my work informs the brush I pick rather than the other way around.

A lot of the heavy lifting starts in the beginning for me. I like to work on a tight drawing and use that as my skeleton for the rest of the painting. The underdrawing isn’t meant to be pretty since little of it will remain in the final, but I keep it around. The original spirit of what’s interesting is sparked in the drawing, so if i lose it while painting I can always look back to it to see what was lost.

There’s a social media campaign going on right now to spread the word on why we need more diversity in our books. It’s really fantastic and inspiring and I am so proud to be a part of it. You can learn more about it here and here.
As a writer and a mom, this campaign is also deeply personal for me. My daughter is 1/2 Korean and 1/2 Jamaican. She loooooves books. I think she might love books more than she loves anything else (including mama!). One day she’ll be able to read them on her own and I want her to be able to find herself in them. I want her to know that girls that look like her can be anyone, can do anything. 
We need diverse books because this is my family.


15 questions white people will never have to ask themselves

Many white people may never truly understand why incidents like the Michael Brown shooting infuriate blacks and other people of color — even when it’s clear that race plays a large, looming role in how the situation snowballed to the 18-year-old’s death.

This is in part because white people can move through daily life without constantly thinking about how their race will be perceived. Part of having white privilege is the freedom from worrying about racism, a freedom their black counterparts have never known. But it gives black people a unique yet challenging perspective by which they navigate the world.

Well, I never thought I would see someone try to recreate what people wore in the concentration camps in WWII and why they would try to make it trendy is beyond me. This is absolutely disgusting. I am sick to my stomach. As a Jew, this is incredibly offensive. Who the hell would ever think this is cute and fashionable? I used to like Zara, but after this I am never shopping there again. Fuck Zara this is utterly disgusting.

Guess I can’t shop at Zara anymore
