After trying for several hours to draw today, I had to face reality.  The recent ketoacidosis has pretty much destroyed my nearsightedness (and messed up my vision in general). This means I can't focus on my sketchpad to draw.  Not for several months while I wait for my blood sugars to stabilize and, after that, can afford prescription reading glasses.  I really don't want to do this, and it hurts to do it, but comics are on hiatus till whenever that happens.  I'll keep you posted. 

However, Webcomic and Comic artists! Wanna do some filler comics while I train myself to draw directly on my tablet in the meantime?

TGDOR Webcomics Project 2009
Howdy, everyone.

I'm gearing up to do this year's Transgender Day of Remembrance Webcomics Project and am looking for transgendered artists and writers who'd like to participate.

For those of you who don't know about the project, in a nutshell, we're a group of webcomic artists and authors who put together a remembrance strip for late
November. There is always a running theme, but the themes are voluntary (especially if your comic has no TG characters). If you'd like some examples of the
earlier entries, you can see previous projects for yourself at the Webcomics DOR site at http://www.dolari.net/dor.

All we ask is that you link to the other comics running images as well, and keep the images up for your normal comic-length. We're aiming at having these
displayed on the week of the 20th. After the comics are done, I'd love your permission to keep them on my Day of Remembrance site, at http://www.dolari.net/dor

This year's theme is "[Something Mundne] shouldn't end in a death." Such as "Falling in Love shouldn't end in death" or "Taking out the trash shouldn't end in
death" (which actually happened). The one I'll be doing is "Going to the Store Shouldn't End in Death." This theme will prolly be more narrative than before,
and multipage entries will be accepted.

Again, the themes are voluntary, and if you have an idea you'd like to pursue, or a better idea for a theme that you'd like to present, please do.

Please let me know if you'd like to participate this year by letting me know via EMail (jenn@dolari.net). IF you know someone who may be interested, but isn't on this list, by all
means, forward it along (especially as real life has kept me from researching the newer comics out there).

Again, sorry for the late status report (life has been...interesting). Look forward to hearing from y'all soon.

A Softer World - Dichotomy
Has anyone seen this before?

A Softer World - Dichotomy

(Make sure to read the alt-text)

I've just started reading A Softer World, this spectacular webcomic, and came across this in the archives. A Softer World comics never entirely make sense, and I'm pretty certain they aren't supposed to, so I don't have anything definitive to say. This was just one of those things where I got to the end and let out an involuntary gasp, so I wanted to share it.

What does everyone else think? Thoughts, reactions?

After the comics are done, I'd love your permission to keep them on my Day of Remembrance site, at http://www.dolari.net/dor

This year's theme is a little less dark than last year's. The theme this year is to illustrate a word or a feeling that the Day of Remembrance makes you feel. This could be a poem, a scene, a feeling, anything that the DOR makes you feel. Good, bad or otherwise.

In particular my plan this year is to illustrate "Hope." An artist drawing with her back to a tree sitting next to a warmly lit graveyard, remembering a time when trans murders were ignored and underinvestigated and how it's all changed (which is hasn't, but that's where hope comes in). If you have a different feeling, draw it. If you'd like to do Hope, too, please do.

Again, the themes are voluntary, and if you have an idea you'd like to pursue, or a better idea for a theme that you'd like to present, please do.

Please let me know if you'd like to participate this year by letting me know via EMail. IF you know someone who may be interested, but isn't on this list, by all means, forward it along (especially as real life has kept me from researching the newer comics out there).

In Death? Neil Gaiman's "I Woke up and One of us Was Crying"
I'm posting this here by request of hurlingdervish. Nice to meet all of you, by the way.



In this scan of "I Woke up and One of us Was Crying" from Neil Gaiman's Sandman comic, a MtF transsexual named Wanda is seen in spirit being led into the afterlife by Death. What I like about it is how Neil Gaiman wrote these panels. She's shown as female. No indication of being male, or in Neil Gaiman's terms, "campy". In all honesty, I cried when I read the page above. I don't see many popular media displaying transsexualism with much respect, and Neil Gaiman gave it the greatest respect. I can't emphasize how very happy I was, I guess saying that it brought me to tears is enough?

Sure, she couldn't participate in the Moon ritual with Fox, Thessaly, and Hazel, but that's only because she had no womb. Some people argued in transgender that not letting Wanda participate in the Moon ritual was an insult, but from reading the Sandman series, it's simply because of the way Neil Gaiman portrayed Gods, the Moon, and other entities. They are not omnipotent as we humans think of. In Morpheus's perspective, they are finite, and can die, unlike the Endless(Which Morpheus is one of). Besides, sadly, Wanda was not born a woman. She does not have a womb, and could not menstruate(which I think allowed Thessaly, Fox, and Hazel to take the Moon path into the Dreaming). It's no insult to transsexualism. Just thought I would throw that out there because there were many comments about that when I posted it in transgender


Here is a picture of Wanda in her human body, before dying.

Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics 2008 in Comic Shops Now!

posted May 29th, 2008

[Print-ready Version]

Prism Comics, which promotes LBGT comics and creators, is proud to announce the publication of Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics 2008, edited by Jonathan Riggs and featuring a cover by acclaimed artist Jackademus. This year’s Guide is bigger and better than ever, bumping up the original LGBT comics pages from 30 to 100, along with over 20 features, interviews and more. In stores now!

"The Prism Guide is bigger than ever in every way—we have more content, more comics, and a new, larger format,” says editor Jonathan Riggs. “We're so proud to pick up where we left off with last year's fantastic guide and—we hope—outdo ourselves in promoting the amazing talent of Prism Comics!"

This year’s Prism Guide features a “Prism High” yearbook theme, recounting everything LGBT in this year’s comics. Highlights include a report card on LGBT portrayals in everything from JSA to the X-Men books and beyond; interviews with famous alumni such as Chuck Kim, writer for TV’s Heroes, and Darren Davis, the founder of Bluewater Productions; an erotic comics roundtable discussion; a celebration of the Transgender Day Of Remembrance by Jenn Dolari; an exploration of the role of religion in LGBT comics; a tribute to the 25th birthday of Jeff Krell’s Jayson; and an intro by Erica Friedman to Yuri Manga (lesbian manga). Original comics include work from LGBT comics giants such as Paige Braddock (Jane's World), Leanne Franson (liliane bi-dyke), Tim Fish (Cavalcade Of Boys), Allan Neuwirth and Glen Hanson (Chelsea Boys), Patrick Fillion (Deimos), Justin Hall (Prism grant winner for Glamazonia), Tommy Roddy (Prism grant winner for Pride High), Chris Companik (HIV + Me), and many more.

Editor Jonathan Riggs was interviewed about the new Guide by Mr. Media (Bob Andelman). You can download the interview as an MP3 file.

Prism Comics is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that promotes LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered) creators, characters, themes and readers in the comic book field. Along with convention appearances, Prism publishes an annual guide to LGBT comics, and maintains a website with LGBT creator listings and features on all that’s queer in comics.

Has anyone been following INFINITY, INC. ?
I saw this at a comic community on LJ and basically want to know what you all thought of it,
That post is locked, so you have to join to see it, but it is open membership so not a huge deal right?

I feel kind of uncomfortable with the portrayal of one of the characters. If you have been reading the comic or you look at the post I link to, you might get why.

Let me know what you think

New Networking site for transguys/genderqueers/allies
hey folks.
I just want to tell you about a site that we launched in early September.

www.transdude.com

It's set up as discussion forums for transguys to network and have discussions with others FTMs, genderqueers and allies. We also have a chatroom for live discussions. Photo albums coming soon. Hope to see some of you there, as well as here.

Thanks.
Aaron
