Happy Pride Month, Dribbblers! We’re incredibly proud to celebrate such a diverse, inclusive community of designers all around the world.
In honor of Pride Month 2019, we asked our very own Dribbbler Carra Sykes to share a few words about what Pride means to her, and to showcase some of her favorite Pride-inspired designs from the community. Check out a few of Carra’s own Shots below then keep reading to learn about the community’s colorful design work she chose to highlight.
Hi y’all! I’m Carra Sykes and I identify as lesbian and queer. I work as a freelance illustrator and designer and love when I get the opportunity to highlight the LGBTQ+ community through art. I’m thankful that I am able to be openly out and visible, and I hope what I make helps people feel less alone.
There are many reasons why I love Pride Month, but one that always sticks out to me is seeing the incredible artwork from the LGBTQ+ community. I learn so much from reading about the artwork and seeing how people are expressing themselves, not only during Pride but also year round. It’s an empowering feeling!
I adore fun and colorful Pride artwork, but I also admire LGBTQ+ art that tells a story. When I looked at these Shots, I felt so many things: proud, the weight of the fight for equality, seen, giddy, and so much more. Make sure to check out the titles of the work and the descriptions—there’s a lot to learn! Keep making and sharing your art because y’all are inspiring! HAPPY PRIDE!
