Know Your City and Community Alliance of Tenants announce the recipient of our Renter’s Rights comic: illustrator Becky Hawkins. The publication will be a 20-page comic book, printed in both English and Spanish. Renters will be able to use the book as a reference to understand the process of eviction, how some evictions are unfair, and what to do if it happens to them.
Our jury was overwhelmed with the quality and talent in our submissions. Unfortunately, we could only choose one candidate for the job. We thank everyone for their interest!
We’re excited to work with Becky, a longtime cartoonist whose comics depict real-life situations, usually drawn from her own life. “This project brings together several different topics that I’m passionate about, and requires artistic strengths that I have been honing for a decade…” said Hawkins, “…If you give me the chance, I would very much enjoy collaborating with KYC and CAT”.
We are now looking for volunteers to help in drafting the script of the comic. If you are interested in volunteering, please send a note to Justin Buri at firstname.lastname@example.org. He’d love to hear from you. The comic is slated for an October release.
