LOVE IS LOVE

As it’s Pride Month, I wanted to create a piece to show my support. The big message attached to this is the simple fact that LOVE IS LOVE. Everyone deserves to love who they want, be who they want to be, pray to who they want, and basically live their life how they want too (without judgment). I’ve tried to do as many flags as I can, which has led me to realize that there were some flags and communities I didn’t know existed. I knew of the main ones, but the smaller communities, or at the very least the flag and name associated with them, were all new to me. It’s been wonderful to learn more. I intend to create another piece with the idea behind it that you’re born into your sexuality. It’s not a phase or something you will grow out of. It’s you. I want to create a piece with a DNA strand and a heart. I wanted to do it this year, but for the life of me, I couldn’t get the piece to look right. I hope that as I build my skill in art, I will be able to draw what I’ve been picturing in my mind.

I don’t want this to come across as I’m only showing my support, so suddenly, just because it’s Pride Month. I’ve always supported the LGBTQ+ community, this year is just the first time I can create an art piece to show that support. I ask you to be incredibly gentle with me if I got something wrong on any of the flags. I’m super fragile. I invite you to educate me, but just see me as a stray animal you found on the side of the road, that has seen shit that needs to be spoken to with a soft and gentle voice. If there is any flag you want me to create, feel free to let me know. I would be more than happy to create it for you. Please feel free to use these designs as you please. I created this for you. I support you. I respect you. I stand with you.

A few things before I round this blog off:

  • I didn’t do the Polyamory Flag as I felt to properly show my support, I would need a different design. I’m still pretty new to drawing and this design took me forever to get right, so once I have the skills to pull of an intricate design, I will definitely create a special design to show my support for the community.
  • I didn’t do the Aromantic Flag as I felt that the design wouldn’t be appropriate to the community.
  • As mentioned before, I’m pretty new at art (it’s an old skill of mine that’s very rusty) so I needed some help to get the proportions right.

The piece I used to help guide me with the face (left) and the piece that inspired this piece (right)

The unicorn heart design was created by Laura Nagel.

Here is the design without a flag.

Thank you so much for all the love and support. Please take care and stay safe. It’s a very scary time right now. We will get through this, together.

Much love,
