It strikes me as amusing that Kitty Pryde, the girl who can’t be touched, is being used to touch all of our hearts. I’d complain, but she phased through the soft spot of my soul years ago. In Full of Pryde over 70 artists created new fanart of Kitty Pryde as a part of a fundraiser for the Oregon Hemophilia Treatment Center. Shown above is a purrfect illustration by Aleks Sennwald and below are just a few highlights from the show:

Tom Neely’s entry reminds one of Little Lulu meets Alien.

Ulises Farinas brings Kitty downtown with a hipster sensibility.

As you can see this event was part showcase, part auction, and yet I know I’d be buying the art for selfish reasons. Somehow I don’t believe that other fanart charities would be near as endearing: The first thing to pop into my head would be Wolverine’s Caring Claws and Iron Man’s Stark Differences. Oh, though maybe Nightcrawler’s Kurt Affection could work!
