SPOTLIGHT: KEHINDE WILEY

Initially his portraits were based on the photographs of young men in Harlem, now he has firmly situated himself as the painter known to travel to urban places in Israel, Africa, Brazil and India to find his next subject…

Visible Bodies: Transgender Narratives Retold By Wolfgang (co-producers Liat Wexler and Scott Duane)

Wexler and Scott Duane, both featured in the project, curated and produced “Visibile Bodies” together. “This project changes the conversation about trans people,” said Duane. “We’re going beyond before and after pictures and discussions of hormones and surgery. Instead, we’re talking about our careers, our partners, parents, and kids, our losses and triumphs — and how being trans interacts with those aspects of our lives. Our goal is to heighten the quality of the dialogue, and I think we’ve done that.” - (Source)

If you’re tabling at a con as a Li’l Rookie, get ready to experience these 12 Stages of Feels exactly like this.

Heya folks. I don’t reblog often, but I’m rebloggin’ this.
That’s because I’ve had this day, multiple times. This was me. And if you’re planning on taking a shot at the whole cartoonist thing, this will inevitably, horribly, unavoidably be you.
Cartooning careers are forged in the crucible of obscurity. This period, the one where no one cares and you go home discouraged, is when most aspiring creators quit. It’s just too much.
But if you can live through a few years of Saturdays spent being passed over for meme t-shirts and fanart prints, if you keep producing and keep going to shows and keep sharing work, you can reach escape velocity. You can find an audience that wants to support you.
Talk yourself out of giving up. Give your work a chance. Your fans just haven’t found you, yet. ( o_o)-b
