This is late, I should have posted yesterday!
The write ups about Help the Cheerleader have been incredibly supportive, and there have been some terribly kind things said about me, which I certainly do not deserve. However, I am grateful and shocked, to say the least. A few highlights (click to see each article):
- Laura Hudson of Comics Alliance wrote THE article about this fundraiser, which has been referenced all over the internet.
- Oh No They Didn’t brought a lot of attention to the cause, even though it’s off the beaten path of their normal subject matter.
- And last but not least, Ms. Magazine has been covering the case from the beginning, and Audrey Bilger wrote a lovely piece about our fundraiser and had some ridiculously kind things to say.
Never did I dream that I would see a huge burst in my pageviews, and that the vast majority of the visitors would be from Ms. Magazine!
So, I have indeed started on the sketch commissions–pencilled about 23 of them so far. Nothing inked and colored yet, but I am making progress. In the meantime, here’s one of my sample sketches, Ororo Munroe, AKA Storm of the X-Men:
Back to drawing for now!
