This is one of my illustrations for the site I’m From Driftwood, which publishes a fascinating collection of true stories by gay people from all across the fruited plains. I was given a story by William Weaver, and my illustrations depict his journey coming out of the closet in a small town.
This piece depicts his memory of Fred Phelps and the “God Hates Fags” group protesting the Gay-Straight Alliance at his high school. Read the full story and see the other illustrations here: http://www.imfromdriftwood.com/2009/07/07/im-fr...
