Anyone from Los Angeles and surrounding area? I’ll be giving a talk at Harvey Mudd College: Cartooning for Queerness – Wednesday 10/12, 12:15 pm! It’s open for everyone! RSVP here: http://tinyurl.com/cartooningforqueerness – PLEASE COME!
I will talk about my experience in creating comics for the LGBTQ demographic in my country, the difficulties in making comics that are appealing, funny and informative at the same time, how to work (or not) with stereotypes without limiting character’s personalities, how to be inclusive in creating realistic characters, and the balance between representation in my comics and artistic autonomy. In the and I will also present a brand new project I have been working on for the past few months!
See you there!
If you love comics so much and usually follow them at Tapastic.com, Out&About is also there!
Follow at https://tapastic.com/series/OutAbout and join Kevin and friends’ story there!
Out&About is excited to announce a new partnership with Matthew Shepard Foundation! The comics strips will be published on their website once a week. Based in Denver-CO, the Foundation provides a voice and support for LGBT youth locally as well as throughout the country.
Here’s the first installment on MatthewsPlace.com
Hello English speaking friends from everywhere!
My name is Kris and I’m really excited to present you Out&About, my comics project that I started more than 3 years ago. It tells through comics strips the story of Kevin and his friends: Harry, Ana, Pedro, Thomas, Mary, Juana, Gabriel, Susan and Alex. I’m a Colorado based Brazilian artist and Out&About started in Brazil under the name Torta de Climão, where it became a book in November 2015. After many months of analyzing, studying, translating and adapting, the first strips are here in English for you! I hope you like it!
Scroll down and check out the characters on the side bar. There is also space for you, fellow comics artists and LGBT blog writers, to have a banner on the website’s side bar. Just send me a message and we can have a crossed ad on each other’s website and support each other. If you have a LGBT-oriented/friendly business, you can be a partner and advertise. There is more information on the top menu, take a look there!
Please support my project liking the facebook page, sharing the strips and recommending it to friends! I’d really appreciate your help! Have fun reading and stay tuned to new strips every Monday, Wednesday and Friday!
