The GENDER book is in the process of making a video that will be used for an upcoming kickstarter and for a grant application. If you want to be in it, we’d love to have you. Here’s how you submit a shoutout:
Make a brief video of you saying how a resource like the GENDER book could make positive change in your life, family, home community. Who do you know that could use some gender education?
Bonus points if you show off your copy, hand-printed or found at an event, or include a shot of your favorite page(s).
Every contributor will get a shoutout in the final hardcover GENDER book and here on our website, and our heartfelt thanks.
Send us an email to creators at the genderbook dot com with Video Shoutout in the subject line, and a link to your blog or youtube or whatever you’d like us to promote for you. But hurry, they’re due by Wednesday Feb 20th if you want to be included.
I’ve been working hard to digitally color all of these scanned drawings. It’s a lot of work and not as instant-gratification-y as drawing outlines. On the plus side, my Wacom is my new favorite art toy. Here’s a sneak peek of some colored pages.
In related news: anyone want an unpaid internship coloring things online?
I just moved to the s.f. bay area (Oakland to be precise).
If you want to hook me up with some queer and gender resources in the city to hang out and help create the GENDER book, drop me a line!
This also means I’m settled in a new desk (with a drawer full of sharpened pencils and illustration pens) so I should be doing more inking and coloring for the full book. Expect updates of that sort soon. Sorry and you’re welcome.
A sneak-peek at our upcoming full-length book. It’s being colored and text tweaked now. Here’s the (rough draft) page on gender/sex. enjoy and feel free to contact us with comments and suggestions! -Mel, firstname.lastname@example.org
Maintained by Mel Reiff Hill, resident artist and co-creator of the GENDER book. Here you can get a first-look at developing pages as they are inked, typeset, and colored.
These pages are presented as in-progress snapshots in the interest of obtaining constructive feedback and community responses- please email me directly your thoughts (I'm email@example.com) or comment on the original post using disqus if you want me to get the memo! Thanks.
