I'm super stoked to say that I got into the Monsters & Dames book for a second year in a row! Like last year, this book will be available in limited quantities (1,000 copies I think?) at the ECCC merch booth at the convention on April 7-10th. Proceeds for this book go to Seattle Children's Hospital, a premier child health care & pediatric center, so it's for a totally awesome cause.
I'm particularly excited about this piece because it's one of the first times I've really pushed myself with the use of color. Both because I wanted to explore more color choices in my work, but also in its own way to celebrate diversity. As I'm trying to represent more women of color in my work, which is super important to me, it was pretty exciting to see that the convention wanted to include a piece like this in their book. I won't overly go into the meanings behind this piece, rather I'll let it speak for itself. However, I will say I love that Emerald City Comic curates a book for a children's hospital that not only celebrates women, but gives an opportunity to artists like myself to express ourselves in positive ways like this.
In addition to this year's piece being available in the Monsters & Dames book, last years piece "Necrowmancer" will be available this year at the con as an exclusive metallic printing at the con. I will only be bringing 25, but if there are any left, I will make the remaining prints available at the Corvink Store!
