Comics Alliance Talks to Cliff Chiang About the CBLDF Member Card Artwork

by Betsy Gomez

Comics Alliance sat down with superstar artist Cliff Chiang to talk about the gorgeous original artwork he created for the 2012 member card. Chiang told Comics Alliance about his motivation:

“I wanted the membership card art to evoke patriotism and reflect our proud legacy of free speech, while also reminding us of the need to defend it vigorously,” Chiang told ComicsAlliance. “Free speech is the cornerstone of our industry, so it’s vitally important to support the efforts of the CBLDF.”

CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein also spoke with Comics Alliance:

“We love the image that Cliff created for our 2012 member card!” said CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein. “He has created a modern take on the classic image of Liberty and placed her in a context that says everything about the CBLDF’s important work. We’re proud to have this image to reward our members for signing up and elated that Cliff was able to create such a flawless visual statement about what the CBLDF stands for.”
