I made these pins for Fanboy, a ‘party for queers of the geeky persuasion’ in San Francisco. Many things came to mind when creating these pins – comic books, sci-fi, innocence, fantasy, etc. I rarely use images outside of my vintage books and photos, so finding the proper images was a challenge at first. After digging through some children’s books, I started finding images that would apply. I took them to my favorite photocopy place and worked on reducing the images to a size that would work for the pins (never an easy task). Once at home, I played with the small images, manually adding color and the text. It was a very fun project and I was very happy with the final results. These are the first five pins in a series of ten.
