DAUGHTERS OF MERCURY ☿ Kickstarter
I want to make a series of 12+ full length oil portraits of trans women. I need $20K+ of your support toward paying the models, materials, and travel expenses. Rewards include a calendar, prints, up to original paintings. More details and confirmations of the models will be rolled out with the updates, so give early and generously to read everything. Project ends October 26 at 10pm, and as usual, if we don’t make the goal, I can’t do the thing.

I need your support to paint a series of a dozen or more full length oil portraits of trans women. Depictions will be driven by the model’s personality and free from the more common cultural tropes surrounding trans ladies. I need money to pay the models for posing, for my own time and materials, and for travel costs. Hopefully even for studio rental and maybe even for an exhibition. The project launches Sunday, September 21. I’m making wall calendars, high quality prints, and selling the paintings. Contact email@example.com to get involved, ask about the paintings, and so on. Abuse will be ignored, education will be brief. The project itself is still in the early stages, because I want to make sure there’s enough interest and support to work on it, but I’ll be confirming and promoting models throughout the fundraising stage. Help me make the goal good and early so I can worry about the important parts. Thank you!

actually his name is Devin and I recommend him as reference for black elves
I’ve been reading Charles Stross’s Neptune’s Brood as an ebook and I was right about at this point in the story when I dropped my phone in the toilet. So I painted a 70km-deep adapted robot mermaid on a water world with natural fission vents.

Better photo pending - I can’t tell if it’s cartoonish from perspective or in the original.
