Microaggressions Mini-Series Volume 1 Issue 1: AWAKEN or the time I was told Latinas can't be artists is a bi-monthly mini-series where I illustrate stories of how it feels to navigate space as a low-income, Latina, female, artist. Stay tuned for more stories about my journey!
I've decided it's time to start taking all the content from my microaggressions micro book and turn it into something I can share with the world. I'm reaching way way back to middle school me with this and tapping into emo-zine-phase self. It feels good.
This blog functions as a space for me to articulate what goes into making my artwork. As it goes, artists are supposedly notorious for being verbose and confusing writers that often come off as pretentious, pompous asses. That hopefully won't happen here. I intend to be as informal as possible. If you've made it this far I probably don't have to warn you that some of this might be NSFW because nudity is known to literally, and irreversibly, burn corneas.*
