I am enjoying this project so much and all the positive feedback that Riley is getting about it. I just finished up my last illustration and all the words that accompany my drawings are directly from Riley. I am now looking at taking this to print, so this will be a learning process for me!
Riley, who moved from Tennessee to Portland just to feel safer to come out as transgender, is a prolific writer and just an all around great human! She has empathy for the world and it’s issues and wants to bring more awareness to the masses. She is happy that she feels like she has a voice now…and she really does give the best hugs!
Well, as soon as I get this to print, we will be selling this issue and all proceeds will go to her favorite organization…so stay tuned! =)
