Sit down with California-based colorist Justin Greenwood as we discuss what the Lower Your Sights project means to him, his contribution to the anthology, and his thoughts on the unifying power of art.
Q: What does this project mean to you?
Justin: I was glad when Matt reached out about teaming up to work on a story for this book.
Like a lot of folks, I’ve been horrified by what has been going on in Ukraine and was
anxious to do something to help.
Q: What is your contribution to Lower Your Sights? (Short Story, Pinup, Etc.)
Justin: Matt Harding (Writer), Patrick Brosseau (Letterer) and I contributed a short story.
Q: In addition to supplying food and essential supplies, Voices of Children also provides art therapy to help kids cope and overcome the stress, anxiety, and trauma of living in war conditions. Do you believe art has the power to heal?
Justin: I like to think so, yeah. I know it has in my own life and given me a place to escape to
when I needed it. Art can be many different things to many different people and it’s a blessing
to be able to share it.
