So, here’s a comic I made for the Quest. It won’t be printed in the Quest this week because someone (not me, for once) made a mistake. But here it is on the Internet. Rani Lakshmibai, who is crazy awesome, has some pretty interesting Boudica parallels going on. Sort of odd, as Prince Albert dedicated a statue of Boudica to Queen Victoria (who was kind of in power when the 1857 rebellion was going on) in 1905. Silly history.
OH LOOK ANOTHER BADASS LADY! Sylvia Rivera was fantastic, as was her colleague Marsha P. Johnson. You should look all their achievements up on the interweb, as I only had room for a couple of them. Also, I just realized I made her Stonewall hair crazy big. Oh, well. Maybe you need really big hair for a riot.
Man, I feel like all I post these days is my quest comics. Probably because all I post these days is my quest comics. Sorry, friends - life’s been busy of late. But here is Mary Seacole! Even if you take into account the controversy currently broiling around her history, she was still a very cool lady.
So this is a very bad cell phone picture, but it’s an unscannable 3.5 by 5 foot piece hanging on a wall and I don’t own a camera, so i think I can be forgiven. This is my midterm project for the Figure class I’m taking. Pencil and watercolor. It looks not so great on screen, but in real life I rather like it.
