Just To Clarify features the work of animator and illustrator Jose D. Medina. Originally from Venezuela, Medina now resides in San Francisco, where he works for Facebook.
Medina’s work is character based and features a wide variety of diverse populations. The content ranges from political to the humorous and lighthearted, often doing both simultaneously. Just to Clarify functions as a celebration of queerness and addresses the many LGBTQIA issues of our time.
Medina has developed his own unique illustrative style which utilizes compact geometric shapes. Medina writes: “This is a practical extension of how I view people: we are simple and similar. Despite our differences, we share the same basic shape. Everyone belongs.”
