Ending Abuse Through Art

How has abuse (in all its various forms: domestic, sexual, financial, emotional) affected your life? Stop and think, and you will realize that everyone is somehow affected by abuse.

But there is hope! Together—through the power of art and entrepreneurship—we can work to empower those who have suffered from abuse. Abuse survivors are courageous, powerful, and amazing individuals who deserve to be recognized for their artistic creations. The Uncovered Artistry Project, a nonprofit online gallery that features the work of domestic and sexual abuse survivors, is hosting An Art Show to End Abuse.

Please consider donating (even as little as a dollar) to our Kickstarter campaign to help fund the event. This event can only happen with your help! Seriously, your donation will make a huge difference for this little nonprofit.

And please consider submitting your work to the event:

Ms.Comix T-Shirts, Hot Off the Press!

Ms.Comix t-shirts are now on sale! And for only $10! These cool graphic t’s are available at Mosaic Shirts, a small student-run design and shirt printing company. I’m not a graphic artist in even the loosest sense of the word, so I turned to Max from Mosaic shirts. I showed him the Lichtenstein I chose to brand my blog, and he did the rest.

So what are the perks of owning a Ms.Comix t-shirt?

1. You look cool.


2. You support women.

Ms.Comix interviews some awesome female comic writers and artists. By wearing your Ms.Comix shirt, you’re helping the blog keep doing what it does best–supporting awesome women!

3. You support a small business.

Mosaic Shirts is student-run, and everybody knows that students are the future (and, btw, entrepreneurs are the foundation of our economy!).
