I wanted to create this piece for everyone in my community as a reminder that we are queer and we aren’t going anywhere. Though it's in my style, I experimented with new techniques and brushes to create a dichotomy of texture from hard to soft to mirror how gender expression often appears. While painting this I leaned into the more masculine aspects of my identity, something that pushed me out of my drawing comfort zone, seeing as I usually draw femme presenting people. I drew this piece in the program Procreate and utilized its many brushes.
