Took a bit of a liberty with the characters of LRC - hope the No H8 People don't mind! For More info please go to:

Good luck to my brothers and sisters out in DC today! And it's coming out day so I hope if you haven't already, please join the party! I know it may be tough depending on your situation but here's hoping it will be sooner than later...
If you haven't already - find Little Rainbow Comics on Facebook and become a fan:
Gay issues are a lot for a young mind to tackle and it can be easy to forget the kind of damage messages of hate, intolerance and damnation can do, not only to GLBT youth but it could also justify violent actions in the minds of bullies that would prey on the GLBT community.
And if you haven't already - become a fan of LRC on facebook:
Wow - I guess if we Californians can't vote for same-sex marriage then I guess I shouldn't be surprised about Maine. It is sad when the majority can take rights away from a minority.
But when the only defense people have against same sex unions is that 'it goes against tradition' or some theological based reasoning - I just have to shake my head in disbelief. If you look at the history of Christianity (or any religion for that matter)- it ain't all its cracked up to be. Look close and you will find more than a fair share of treachery, murder and lies.
The GLBT community is asking for 'civil marriage' nothing else. Your pedophilic priests can marry you if you want (Sorry Father Geoff!). Separation of church and state is supposed to exist so I'm not sure why this is even happening. Same sex marriage is legal in other countries and they seem to be doing all right yet for some reason US citizens won't allow it to happen.
I'm not even a big fan of marriage in general - divorce rates being what they are - the heterosexual population is doing just fine in 'destroying the sanctity of marriage' all by themselves. What is important is the benefits that marriage gives to couples and if two consenting adults wish to enter into a civil contract to have those benefits, why the HELL NOT?
And to all the people out there who say 'We voted on it, get over it!' - if the situation were reversed would you let people walk all over you?
We will continue to fight so get ready to rumble, baby!
Happy New Year to my fans and followers alike - thank you for your patience! The Holidays were a bit more hectic than I'd have liked but I had a good time - I hope you did too.
I plan to resume LRC next week so cross your fingers! I hope the new decade starts well for you and those close to you - chase those dreams - but better yet - plan for them - and even better - work on them!
I'm a big fan of Kathy Griffin so while I work on the new strips - enjoy this little snippet!
So the strip will be delayed yet again - see - I also got a new job over the Holidays so now I'm working full time again - which means zero creative time - sigh -what's a starving artist with a lot of student loans to do?
Hopefully it will mean great opportunities!
In the meantime - I'm excited to see Ru Paul's Drag Race launch it's second season in February!
I'll keep you updated on things - kiss kiss!
Hey guys - my few loyal fans - well it's been even LONGER since I've been back.
When I started the strip back in Sep 2009 I was only working part-time. I had a bit more freedom to be creative. Since Dec 2009 (when I took a hiatus) I have more of a full time 8 to 5 type commitment so unfortunately something had to suffer - but not my TV watching that's for sure...
So that Drag Race season 2 was a suckfest - I did watch it but Season 1 was so much better - this season was a bit of a disappointment - esp with the winner! All that time to find the person with the least amount of personality/entertainment value...just more proof these 'reality shows' are fixed.
I did enjoy Project Runway - glad Seth Aaron won. Also glad to see the top three designers in their or close to their 40's - there is hope for us old folks!
This season of ABDC was pretty good - though I was rooting for the runner up. Blueprint brought something a little newer to the stage but at least it was a West Coast Crew that won.
I have been working on new cartoon ideas for some hollywood types - still in the 'working' phase - so cross your fingers that something will come of all that effort! Lots of character design and heartache...ugh...
I have been working on other creative outlets ie: Greeting cards, t-shirts, calenders and all that fun stuff.
I actually got contacted by a new online gay magazine to potentially create strips for them on a regular basis but they decided to go with someone else = :*(
Oh well - keep trying!
But here's some good news: I've written the next few sets of strips so hopefully I can resume that by June - in fact - I'll vow to get a new strip by 06/03/10 - stay tuned!
Please become a fan on facebook - thanks!
Hello fans old and new:
LRC plans to return next week - cross your fingers - I've been jotting down stories so I hope to make time and resume this wonderful project.
Since the main characters are kids I figured to pay an homage to all the gay parents out there! I will probably touch on that as the strip continues so I hope that will bring more dimension to what I want LRC to be. If any GLBT parents out there want to share some stories I'd love to hear it!
I know growing up in a mainstream family has issues all its own - kids can be ridiculed for their awkward straight parents - having gay parents might be a lot of ammunition and cause more stress to children in a same-sex parent household - so congratulate any GLBT parents out there for having the courage to be OUT and integrating in a potentially unforgiving community.
When I get a chance I also do work on a very cool site: Greeting Card Universe.You can find all kinds of cards there - people make cards for things cards shouldn't be made for but....here's a few cards for Fathers Day in case you needed some ideas - enjoy!
Relaunch at last! Thanks for your patience and I can't believe I made my deadline - yay!
I hope to be more consistent with the strip from now on - can't promise that work and other art pursuits may have to take precedent but I will do my best to keep LRC coming.
Please find LRC on Facebook - thanks!
When I was growing up I remember playing with the neighborhood kids and going around saying who we wanted to marry. Before my turn one boy mentioned Farrah Fawcett - so I picked Jacqueline Smith - but I really wanted to marry Lee Majors.
Put a comment on the FB page saying who you'd marry when you were growing up...thanks!
Hello Fans: I'm sorry I didn't get to a new strip this week- other artistic pursuits (and regular work) got in the way. Was a bit tired from my weekend last weekend with the hubby but we had a good time so I guess it's all right.
I decided to give you a 'teaser' or hint about things to come. Calvin and Hobbes gave us 'Stupendous Man' so LRC will give you 'Little Rainbow League' aka: Dr. Zappo , Tuff Girl and Captain Fabulous - new champions of GLBT rights (what kid wasn't fascinated with this modern mythology?)
Lots of ideas for villains that they (and their friends) will have to face - saving the world won't be easy!
I hope to get back to LRC soon - I have to take some legals steps to protect LRC, other art projects and work (that actually pays me) so LRC may be on a short hiatus - my apologies - but something has to suffer - please come back!
The heroes will probably evolve as time goes on - they don't have super powers - just regular folks fighting crime - they'll all have the gadget belts that a lot of heroes have so I forgot to put that on Tuff Girl and Captain Fabulous.
And here's a shameless plug: The shirts you see are in my zazzle store and there is a sale - you will get 17.76% off of your purchase through 07/05/10 - lots of fun products to search for or you can always create your own...have a great Holiday Weekend (my US fans anyway).

Now I don't mind a little interaction on my blog site (or FB page) but since I don't have anything new for my fans - I was wondering if my fans had anything they'd like to share?
If you are an artist, writer, photographer, etc - please take this time to share what you're working on!
Or if you wanted to share something of GLBT interest, articles, videos, please feel free to post that as well. (I'll take a cute picture of your pets too!)
One of the blogs I follow is 'Queers United' and they sometimes post what they call 'shameless self-promotion' spots where people get to post links to their sites, works so I'd like to extend that to LRC fans.
Note: Please no adult imagery - I would like to keep the LRC blogsite family friendly. If you wish to post a link to your work that may contain adult content - please post a warning.
Little Rainbow Comics reserves the right to moderate any postings on its blog.
OK now that that's out of the way - please let me see your work! Somedays I just want to be inspired...thank you!
