My mixed media illustration of Detective Renee Montoya, Detective Romy Chandler and Captain Maggie Sawyer of Gotham Central ready to take back the city. Illustration created for Women of Wonder Day 2012! All proceeds go to a wonderful cause!
Awhile ago, I was listening to the amazingly talented and wonderful Kellysue Deconnick discuss her work on Captain Marvel and the inspirations behind Carol’s new role over on iFanboy. While listening to this great podcast, I discovered we both have a deep rooted love and admiration for WWII fighter pilots and the history surrounding them. She began discussing the role of W.A.S.P.S. (Women Airforce Service PilotS), their bravery and the bullshit they endured during that era in the USA. That interview got me immediately inspired to begin creating this piece in celebration of the strength that our female pilots displayed, and the excellent work and respect Kelly is putting into Carol Danvers.
It’s pretty rad Kelly and I both live in Portland and I’ve been able to chat with her about all of this! :)
Hey guys! Three weeks ago, I started a new auto-bio/pop culture webcomic called “GRIGSGAGGLEBY”! It’s been a blast to make so far, but I’m also pretty nervous about it as this is my first time dabbling in the webcomic genre. I will have lots of silly insight into many subjects, and there will be times where I reflect on more serious stuff. Either way, I’m excited to be able to share with all of you folks what goes on in the life of a struggling 25 year old Freelance artist in Portland, OR.
If you’d like to check it out, please follow the link! Tell your friends, reblog, add a link or follow along, anything thing you can think of! I hope you enjoy all of the work that will be showing up this year! I’ve made a huge commitment to myself and others that I would really step up my art game in 2012 and I refuse to let that goal falter.
A MASSIVE thank you to all of the support you’ve shown me so far!
