  3. "Back in the day, Walter would, every once in a while, forget how to draw. Remember?" Louise said.

    “Oh yeah,” Walter agreed. “That still happens occasionally. It’s like, ‘Oh my god, nothing I’m drawing looks any good anymore. My life is over as an artist.’ And what I realized, because I was an editor at the time, and had seen a lot of work go past me, was that when you hit this phase where suddenly your stuff, which looks just like it did yesterday, doesn’t look good to you anymore, it’s because your mind has made a leap. Your brain has gotten farther than your hand has learned to do it yet. But eventually, give it a few weeks, keep it up and you’ve made a leap in your own craft. That was a big help because it was so depressing when you realize you couldn’t draw anymore.”

    From an interview with Walt and Louise Simonson. (via twiststreet)

    Exactly this.

    "My name is Julie Dillon and I’m the creator of Imagined Realms: Book 1, which is the first in a series of annual art books that I am illustrating and self-publishing. Each book contains 10 all-new illustrations made exclusively for each book!

    I got into art because I love to create, to see the world in new ways, and to stir the imagination of others. I have long wanted to start putting together my own books and work on more personal projects. “Imagined Realms” gives me the opportunity to spend more time creating my own illustrations and projects, and also gives me the chance to create more illustrations that feature positive and diverse representations of women.

    Each book will have it’s own theme. The art in Book 1 is all fantasy themed, and Book 2 (which is currently in development) will be science fiction themed.

    I am launching this Kickstarter to pay for the cost of getting the books printed. It will also give me the ability to create the content for Book 2. Currently, the print book will be available exclusively through kickstarter.”

    Well, here’s the thing. The basic premise of this whole deal is that what is or isn’t assumed to be “historically accurate” is used to exclude people of color from participating or being represented in historical and fantasy media of all kinds. Which is why the question from yesterday about white people being in Asia or Africa in “ancient times” is loaded. Because you cannot pretend that this works both ways equally.

    What I am doing is trying to show that the same idea, being “historically accurate”, can be used to include people of color. Sadly, there is so much pressure to exclude, that people really feel the need to justify the presence of say, characters of color in a film, or a book, with some kind of historical facts and figures. Even when it’s ridiculously, almost comically, irrelevant-for example, people who seem to think that the history of Denmark has something to do with representation of characters of color in the Disney film Frozen.

    What I hope is that by taking care of this end of things, creative types will have free rein to imagine whatever they want, to create what they envision without having to be bludgeoned with “not historically accurate!!!!” every time they turn around, whether or not it’s relevant to their creation.

    The bottom line is, what we NEED is more films like Hercules, and fewer films like Exodus. What we see will trump what we KNOW every time-almost everyone knows and understand what The Silk Road was, yet the obvious facts that people traveled on it doesn’t come into play when someone starts insisting that “there were NO people of color in Medieval Europe!!!” Or Ancient Egypt. Or Classical Greece.

    Because what we have here:

    is a direct result of depictions like THIS:

    more than anything historically accurate.

  12. Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
    Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
    “I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
    “And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
    “Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
    “And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”

    Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
