Hi, I'm Rebecca and I make cartoons, comics and illustrations.

I hope you enjoy my feminist point-of-view and my slightly snarky, sometimes dark sense of humor. If you appreciate my work, please support it: patreon.com/gynostar

Also check out "The Adventures of Gyno-Star," a superhero parody webcomic. The strips I post here are from the archive, but new material is added weekly on my website: www.gynostar.com

Affirmative Consent Teaser
These are the first few panels from a much longer comic I did about the topic of sexual consent. See the rest of the comic here: www.upworthy.com/a-handy-comic… (I can't post it all here because Upworthy owns the rights.)

I'm realizing I never linked from here to my work on Upworthy, but you Deviants really ought to see it if you haven't. I did one comic about feminism, basically an explainer for people who ask you why you're a feminist: www.upworthy.com/feminism-figh…

This one is about offensive comments/jokes and why the problem with them isn't really "offense" per se: www.upworthy.com/this-artist-b…

And finally this one, which is probably my fave so far, is about affirmative consent: www.upworthy.com/a-handy-comic…

At about 16-panels each, these are longer than the work I usually do - yet shorter than you really need to explore these topics and do them justice. So in both regards they were interesting challenges for me. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, though. Definitely hope I get to work with Upworthy some more.
Sylvia Rivera - #ShePersisted
The second portrait in my series based on Sen. Mitch McConnell's remark about Sen. Elizabeth Warren ("She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.") which inspired the hashtag #ShePersisted.

Sylvia Rivera was an activist for gay and trans rights. She legendarily led the charge during the Stonewall uprising which initiated the LGBT rights movement. She co-founded the Gay Liberation Front, the Gay Activists Alliance, and the Street Transgender Action Alliance. Rivera always fought for the most vulnerable and marginalized, like homeless lgbt teens and trans women of color. She made a point to raise the voices of those who were often ignored even within their own movement, insisting that drag queens, trans men and women, and other nonconforming people should not be shut out in the interest of mainstream acceptance.

Dolores Huerta #ShePersisted
When Sen. Mitch McConnell's remark about Sen. Elizabeth Warren ("She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.") became a rallying cry for the resistance, it occurred to me to make a series of "She Persisted" drawings featuring great women/femme freedom fighters. 

This is the first of what I hope will be a series.

Dolores Huerta co-founded the National Farm Workers Association (NFWA) which later became the United Farm Workers (UFW). She has spent her life fighting to protect the rights of workers, immigrants, Latinx people, and women - and continues that work to this day.
