I'm all for more diversity, as long as the standard of quality artists remains. The problem I had with the Jennifer Wang podcast, if I recall, is that she was actively looking for stuff to be offended by. As in, "use these approved words and phrases or you are a racist and misogynistic." It just reeked of someone trying to assert their moral superiority more than anything else

That isn't at all what she was saying. I had to pause the video after several minutes because I was so excited by what I heard by and I was shocked at the comments underneath. So I continued on listening looking at for Jennifer telling what people to do and that is NOT what she was saying at all. This is the problem is that people are looking at things to get mad at her for but she was very on point as a woman of Asian descent to for how people need to be aware of what they are depicting and how thats impacting PoC.

Islamic type of art artists, mangakas, Korean webtoons comics, Southeast Asian artists, South Asian artists artists etc etc I’ve seen a lot of people in the comments ask for more East Asian manga type art interviews. And I know western artists look weirdly at Asian artist’s especially in the anime field cuz apparently to them FiNe aRT iS tHe BEsT. there’s an awesome platform to be used to expose people to so much diversity and learn from it. just frustrated with the lack of diversity. It’s like the comments section of his previous Diversity in Arts with Jennifer Wang podcasts scared them. Felt like the knee was bent to some really loud misogynistic conservative voices.

Is it painting plain air recommended for the same reason for drawing from life is better than from photos? This debate from life vs photos confuses me

Does the Zorn Palette work painting the skintones of South Asian/East Asian/Southeast Asians who are more yellow leaning green based? If not, how could it be adjusted to better suit painting those ethnicities?

After your podcast with Jennifer Wang I was floored at the comments. How will you address diversity in the Prokoverse?

I was really inspired by Jennifer Wang's episode on Draftsmen and it made me realize and think about the important topics that she discussed (but somehow got hate for it in the comments?) I searched for a WoC community on reddits but couldn't find any so I thought perhaps there may be some on here!
