Transgender Day of Remembrance & EcoFest
I made this targeted at people who don't know about the holiday and who aren't really aware of any problem, so I kept it really simple. I didn't intend to make a dichotomy between being trans, and being gay or straight, and I hope it isn't read that way. Queer would have covered things nicely, but it is often taken as a slur and would have been confusing. I also know there are many shades of lavender between the binary of boy/girl, but how to put that across as quickly and easily as possible for people who don't? Nuanced yet simple? Very tricky.
This is for my college's annual environmental festival. This year's theme is to be food and a sustainable New York City. Those donuts were delicious, by the way.
I started this blog while trying to teach myself how to draw and hoping to find a professional artist to mentor under. Then I decided I needed to go to school. Now I'm about to graduate with a degree in graphic design and go on to a B.S. in fine art.
