It took me forever and a half, but I’ve finally gotten prints of all 12 of the current ‘Yzma is Best Princess’ series up in my etsy store.  Along with the original paintings, for the hard-core collectors out there :)

Please check them out or maybe even help spread the word.  Thank you!

Massachusetts is proud to have been the first state in the union to legalize same-sex marriage, and deservedly so. And yet we must remember that it took this country 228 years just to get that far. Yes, 228 years after the Declaration of Independence was signed, 141 years after the country abolished slavery, 84 years after women won the right to vote, and 40 years after the Civil Rights Act codified the rights of African Americans, it still took until 2004 for even one state to legalize same-sex marriage. Yet all great movements must have their starting point, and we must recognize that this continues to be an ongoing process. There will continue to be setbacks, grief, and heartache along the way, yet the work must always continue until all 50 states have joined Massachusetts in bestowing true equality upon all their citizens. On this 10-year anniversary of marriage equality, we pause to celebrate that first, necessary step that will show us all the way forward
ICMYI: Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of marriage equality in Massachusetts, and therefore in the United States. E. Denise Simmons, a seven-term Cambridge City Councilor and the country’s  first black, openly lesbian mayor, wrote about it for the Huffington Post. (via gaywrites)
