Hey all... just wanted to let you know that I changed my username from WitchySaint to DAlexisStPierre.

Also I wanted to announce the NY Times project that Jamie and I have been working so hard on these past few weeks.
:iconjamiefayx: was asked (then he asked me since were doing these "Legacy" commissions together) to contribute to the New York Times GLBT & Aliies Network's Gay Pride Celebration.

There will be 10 posters on display for the month of June in the buildings cafeteria. Each poster will show a variety of categories like Entertainers, Trendsetters, Politicians, and Power Duos to name a few. For the first time, comic book characters will be added to the mix.

Each poster will have a list of at least 5 people in each category who has made an impact on the GLBT community. Our board ranges from mainstream to indie comics, a range of the community and all honored for their achievements:

Karma - One of the first openly Lesbian mainstream comicbook characters and for being a mentor/teacher to a new generation.

Phazer - Critically acclaimed Gay indie character praised on how well the character was written and for being an adoptive father/mentor for a group of kids who lost their parents.

Mystique - Iconic Bisexual character in mainstream comics. She is known by many, including people who don't read comics.

Northstar - First openly Gay superhero in mainstream comics.

Batwoman - First openly Lesbian character to have a critically acclaimed on-going series and the first GLBT character to wear an iconic mantle.

These characters were chosen and we were happy to draw/color them. But there's still more. We just finished Shatterstar and Rictor for the Power Duo board (both bisexual men in a gay relationship) and are finishing up Solstice from Teen Titans for the board focusing on Allies to the GLBT community.

I could probably fit in a coloring commission for you next week if you're still interested. Note me (include a link to the lines you want colored) and we'll talk. :)

I'm surprised you guys didn't add Apollo and Midnighter to the mix.

The way I understand it Jamie gave them a list of characters and the person in charge picked the ones they wanted us to do. But there's always next year. :D

Yeah, he just told me. Either way, that's a great project to be part of. Hey, maybe next year you guys can do something like that for a media outlet out here on the west coast. Trust me, there's plenty of opportunity for those sorts of projects anywhere near San Francisco or down in West Hollywood.

apollo/midnighter and wiccan/hulking i was pushing for. but those chose diversity over popularity. shatterstar and rictor were chosen because they are both bisexual men in a gay relationship.

Okay, fair enough. Congrats on getting the project though. That's definitely something to be proud of.
