Here is the latest Utne reader illustration for both the Artivism section and for me to contribute as an illustrator and a writer. I chose to talk about me doing my own book and they were gracious enough to let me say it.
This one is about coding and a teacher who wrote in about what she does in her class! Had fun trying to make a picture that shows a kid posing while in class, and a bunch of kids learning. With programs like Black Girls Code or Girls Who Code Team, this quick drawing reminded me of that. Shout out to Art director Suzanne Lindgren. See the original post
UTNE is a forward thinking news source/magazine out of the mid west. I have been checking them out for awhile; intrigued by the covers first then drawn to read up on topics such as farming, protest, politics, good music, environment, and more. I’m starting to work with them and art director Suzanne Lindgren on a series of short op ed type pieces about what people are doing to change the world. Illustration accompanying each one will be coming more regularly I hope and hopefully more collaboration with UTNE. Please go read the article for yourself HERE and check out their site.
