theresthedoorspaceman:

What is this Tumblr about?  The inspirational Darwyn Cooke image above from his DC Series NEW FRONTIER, and Wonder Woman’s wonderful line “There’s the door, Spaceman” encapsulates well what we are trying to do here.
Basically, a celebration of great art that in “unconventional” and does not fall into the typically “supermodel-esque” style that has overtaken comics, especially those in the mainstream. 
This Tumblr is not intended to be a slight against more typical portrayals or artists that that work in a more “traditional” style. I’m a fan of many of those artists and many of those portrayals, but I think a safe space to celebrate those images that fall outside the norm is a nice way to say that we as readers and fans want and in fact CRAVE that variety. Some of the best and most interesting work being done by artists today has nothing to do with stereotypical and accepted portrayals of women.
You can (and should!) submit your own images to: theresthedoorspaceman[at]gmail[dot]com
Please make sure to include a link, preferably to the artist, unless it is an image from something already well known and published. You should also include a one sentence descriptor of what the image is and the name of the artist, and you should feel free to include a brief comment about what moves you and impresses you about the image. Mostly though, we’re here to let the images speak for themselves.
I reserve the right to reject images that I feel don’t meet the criteria, or that don’t have links included.

Everyone, this is Kelly Thompson’s first Tumblr, and she chose an awesome theme. Go make her feel welcome and submit great art!
