So happy to get Mulan for the lovely snarkies' Disney Ladies Collaboration on twitter! If I hadn't been destined to love Ariel by default, Mulan would be my favorite Disney lady of all time.
I was requested to draw Morrigan and i decided to draw au Morrigan, because why not
Cover Girl from GI Joe
Late last year Jeff Lemire said that he had created a new hero for his new Justice League book - a teenage Cree girl from James Bay based in part on a real-life person, the late activist Shannen Koostachin.
When the first cover for Justice League United #1, by Gene Ha, was revealed, however, the character was nowhere to be seen. And several folks were disappointed to see a cast that was, well, very not diverse.
The variant cover by Gene Ha didn’t look any more diverse, either.
But that second cover is actually going to look different and diverse when it hits the stands.
A fantasy adventure series following the exploits of the wild young princess, Bold Riley, as she explores the world of The Coin.
I definitely don’t thank my tumblr followers enough for the role they play in keeping me afloat as an artist. You guys are the ones who promote my work, buy my prints, and encourage me to keep on keeping’ on. I owe you so much and I am grateful for each and every one of you.
So it is my ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to announce the Bold Riley Vol. 2 Kickstarter! If you’ve read volume one, then you know what a worthwhile story it is… and if you haven’t, then now is a great time to familiarize yourself with Riley’s world.
THIS KICKSTARTER IS FOR THE ARTISTS. Bold Riley is already attached to a publisher, so printing and distribution costs are taken care of… so the funding is to help pay the artists (myself included) for their hard work.
So please consider funding or signal boosting… you’ll be directly helping me pay my bills, that’s for sure!
Pinga – In Eskimo (Inuit) Mythology, “Pinga”, “The one who is up on high”, is the omnipresent female spirit who watches carefully over men’s actions, especially their treatment of animals. She protects all living creatures and controls the hunt. She is also the Inuit goddess of fertility and healing. Among the inland “Eskimo”, she was named “Mother of the Caribou” and was believed to dwell in heaven.
A post has been traveling around Tumblr where Big Barda is mistaken for Wonder Woman. I thought I’d take the opportunity to help correct that mistake, and introduce the baddest bitch from Apokolips.
Taken from her mother at a young age, Barda was trained by Granny Goodness to serve the evil lord Darkseid. She becomes leader of the Female Fury Battalion, a ferocious pack of women warriors. During a raid, she meets Scott Free, and discovers the problematic nature of her upbringing. Turning her back on the abusive Darkseid and Granny, she joins a rebel cell and risks her life to enable Scott’s escape to Earth. After some time the two are reunited, decide to get hitched, and become a kick-ass crime fighting couple. After a few years of working, they retire to New Hampshire and attempt to live a normal life. When this plan fails terribly, they move to Greenwich Village, NY where Barda forms a defense-training program for women called the New Female Furies. The two still occasionally help out with JL missions.
Barda is a proud homekeeper and wife. One of the deadliest hand-to-hand combatants alive, she has fought Wonder Woman to a draw. Energy bolts from her megarod are strong enough to concuss Superman, and her heart is such that she never turns down a friend in need. 7 feet tall, fast as a whip, and she loves Pokemon Cards. Does it really get better than that?
My love for Big Barda/Scott Free knows no bounds.
BARDA!!!!!! I love her so muchBarda!
If I tried to tell you how much I like Big Barda, you would accuse you of hyperbole.
