THE WONDERFUL ZEBRA. An “Hour Drawing,” available to purchase here, and the 200+ set of them so far here. Subject suggestion for this one was “wonder woman, zebra, bicycle.”
Usually I wouldn’t do something this specific (or cuckoo), but this is one of a number of very late drawings I donated to the successful Kickstarter drive for the Little Heart Comics Anthology, which was a benefit for the marriage equality movement in Minnesota. This is a cause I’m very passionate about, especially living in a state (NC) that passed a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage last year.
BUTCH is an environmental portraiture project and exploration of the butch aesthetic, identity and presentation of female masculinity as it stands in 2013-14. It is a celebration of those who dwell outside of the stringent social binary that separates the sexes and a glimpse into the private and often unseen spaces of people who exude their authentic sense of self.
BUTCH is a celebration of those who choose to exist and identify outside of this binary that has never allowed any accepted crossover. BUTCH is an homage to the bull-daggers, dykes, manly women and female husbands before me. BUTCH is acceptance to the baby butches, young studs, gender queers, and dykes that continue to bloom in the face of societal norms.
