Facing Race Conference – Coloring Sheet

 

Hey fam, excited to share this coloring sheet I illustrated for Race Forward (formerly Colorlines). Shout out to Erin Zipper for bringing me in to do this. And shout out to Nicky Rodriguez who also illustrated a coloring sheet. Quickly, Facing Race is an annual conference where organizers, educators, artists, and regular folks like you get together to talk about racial justice. For some people that inspires eyes rolling, but for the eclectic mix of folks who go it is a lifetime of work. Learn more about it by following Race Forward and attending the conference virtually
And download the coloring sheet to have fun drawing!
Here’s a bit of process from the art making:

Colorlines “Morning Rush” lettering

Just finished this hand lettered type for Colorlines magazine. This is a great honor since I read the magazine and subscribe to it on many social networks. They are always on top of so many issues I want to know about involving education, media, law, activism, entertainment, etc and they have a keen eye for giving light to stories about people of color that many news outlets ignore until there is a national movement or protest in favor of it. Morning Rush is a place where you can find weekly articles that the their editorial team are reading and will most likely cover. Check them out. Thank you Colorlines! Shout out to my Art Director on this, designer Erin Zipper.
