How lucky are we?! Lucky enough to have worked with Natasha Allegri since even before she posted her first Finona and Cake imaginings, and now with her very own cartoon short, Bee & PuppyCat, stirring the hearts and minds of interneters across the known universe. And, as a bonus, an original B&PC illustration for this promotional postcard. We are sincerely honored. -Fred

It was my friend’s mom’s birthday yesterday. Both our moms are single parents and I started thinking about how strong they had to be for us. Then I started thinking about women of color in general. Being a PoC ain’t a walk in the park by itself, but add being a woman in a patriarchal society? Nahhh. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for women of color. AND THEN people have the nerve to call em out on being hard and growing a thick skin, telling them to smile and be happy n’ shit. Fuck outta here. Women that face all that bull and STILL manage to come out on top amaze me.
These thoughts inspired this piece. A black Wonder Woman.
