Sure there are plenty of Lukes… but we want more Landos and Leias!
The Prismatic Art collection aims to commission a more diverse set of fantasy character illustration and release it into a Creative Commons license, making it easier for publishers and gamers alike to populate their games and stories with more women and people of color.
Even $1 helps!
Go to our Kickstarter page and throw us as much money as you found in your couch! Or maybe even a little bit more to help us create a practical solution to a complicated problem.
I am a featured artist on this project and can’t wait to lean into it. We just need your support. :L
Prismatic Art Collection takes it a few steps further:
It commissions diverse fantasy art of characters, like women, people of color, and people of differently-abled bodies.
It seeks artists who themselves are underrepresented in the genre - see above.
It releases that art into the Creative Commons so that it’s widely available to for personal and commercial use.
Consider donating, and consider sharing! Let’s put our money and art where our mouth is. Want more diverse art? LET’S MAKE SOME!
I am a featured artist on this project and I can’t wait to reach our goal!
#4: So fragglerocking true. I have enough practice now putting myself into the mindset of the teenager I was doodling in class or painting in my room. Into that mindset of not being worried about pleasing anyone. In this way, I get my best work and feel healthy.
