okay but guys think about it. one day we’re going to have all these books with queer characters and disabled characters and poc characters, and they’re going to be well-written and not just laughingstocks/token representation, and it’s going to be a common occurrence and there’s going to be this whole generation of kids that’s going to be able to look at these books with these characters and think “that’s me” without having to struggle to find them and honestly that’s so beautiful.
I just finished listening to the "Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe" audiobook (it's read by Lin Manuel Miranda and it's amazing!). i had been meaning to read it for a really long time partly because you talked about it so much before. I just noticed that you haven't drawn any aridante fanart for a while and I just wondered why? Love your art by the way, you are amazing <3
