"The Anthology of an Artist" by Krysta Marie Morningstarr-Cox
"The Anthology of an Artist" is a collection of comics and artwork by Krysta Marie Morningstarr-Cox, a queer artist who is currently incarcerated.
The artist in her own words: "My name is Krysta Marie Cox. I am transgender. I write and draw “comic” style art, heavily influenced by the manga art style, that chronicles my feelings, experiences, thoughts and advice when it comes to that singular experience of transitioning one’s gender. My journey has been painful, but it is said that beauty is pain. My intent is to share that pain in such a way that others may see the beauty in it as well. It is also my hope too, perhaps, to save even one person from the mistakes I have made as well. Mine have landed me in prison and as far as pain goes, being in prison has been the most painful thing I have ever experienced. But again, there is beauty even here, within these prison walls."
Proceeds from sales go toward directly supporting the artist.
