Thanks Grace Nuth (writer, artist, and fine art model) for including Josie and I in your blog series! We love fantasy art, and strive everyday to increase representation in spec fiction, so it's nice when someone notices.
Check out our comments on being working POC artists in the fantasy genre, the importance of this moment in time, and the #BlackLivesMatter movement in publishing.
UPDATE: Here is the full interview!
Josie and I are excited to be a part of the Grand Rapids Public Library COMIC GEEK OUT! #BelieveInWonder representing! Creating the poster was so super fun, and if you look close you'll notice Zora Sparks from #TheWonderousScience makes a cameo ;) I'm dropping some process photos from the design, and here is the info for the online event:
