Hey Of us,
I’ve had a tremendous 12 months, and I needed to finish 2018 by actually making a distinction. Let me contact on the headline-y stuff first, then I’ll get emotional: if you happen to order my design benefitting Rainbow Railroad at characterize.com/sinagrace (as a shirt, mug, or hoodie), I’ll ship you a “thank-you” drawing on a postcard. The marketing campaign ends at midnight pst! We’re within the closing hours!
Okay, now for the feels.
I’m at a blessed spot in my life. Iceman made me the comeback child who obtained to do a victory lap throughout the nation, celebrating the sequence that discovered a vocal viewers who embraced my dumb dad jokes and omega-level motion sequences. Whereas at New York Comedian-Con, I discovered in regards to the Rainbow Railroad, a corporation devoted to defending LGBTQ+ folks dwelling in international locations with state-enabled violence and persecution. After months of serving to native charities, chatting with queer youth… I knew proper then and there I needed to shift my focus to aiding those that wanted assist however are out of my periphery.
Whereas my drawing “It’s Studying Cats n Canines” appears fairly easy, it really speaks to all of the sh-t we’ve been coping with in comics. As a former comedian retailer worker, humorous books all the time felt like a approach to make new mates and join over four-color fantasies. My canine Henry and cat Amelia all the time share my lap after I do my weekend comedian studying, so I tapped into my Keith Haring/ Marjane Satrapi veins to create a simple-but-heartwarming picture. If a canine and a cat can come collectively over comics, so can we.
At any charge, please think about serving to me elevate consciousness and funds for a trigger I’m tremendous captivated with. It could take me a couple of weeks to get all these postcards performed, however I’m more than pleased to indicate y’all my gratitude for being part of this marketing campaign.
Thanks a lot for studying,
