I had the opportunity to be apart of a Julie and the Phantoms zine @jatpzine recently and I’m finally getting to share my piece with you guys! Doing this project was super fun! It was my first time doing a zine and it was a really cool experience!
My piece was a JATP High School Musical AU topic so I drew Julie and Luke as Gabriela and Troy singing Breaking Free (because it’s similar to Finally Free). Super proud of this piece! Hope you guys like it too!
Casual reminder that Julie Molina is canonically a genius. My evidence is as follows:
She’s in calculus and she’s... what, a sophomore? I’m a junior and I’m not taking calculus until next year.
She said (about performing with the boys for the first time) “I’d explain it, but it involves algorithms and science stuff,” and n o b o d y questioned it.
^Like seriously not even Flynn or Carrie questioned that she’d be able to make that happen.
She said “I’ll learn how to fiddle” (about Reggie’s country thing) like it was no big deal, like learning wholeass instrument would be easy to her.
She imagined a song (Perfect Harmony) and then plonked the melody out on the piano like 5 minutes later, suggesting that either she has studied music so extensively that she can recognize individual notes on command or she naturally has perfect pitch.
It took her... what? An hour? To come up with a plan of how the band could possibly play the Orpheum?
In short Julie is canonically a genius. Does this mean she has life smarts? Not necessarily. But she’s still a genius. No wonder Luke is in love with her.

In which the kiddos go to Pride! This time Willie is following Alex, and the two them couldn't be happier. Julie, Luke and Reggie can't help cheering them on. Carrie would like to know how on earth Julie is floating, and Flynn finds her confusion hillarious.
I've known that I wanted to draw a big pride piece since I started drawing for this show. After a month and a half, it's finally done!
With the exception of Alex, these are my personal head cannons for the gang! I’ll put them, (and what their shirts say) under the cut
Alex: Pansy Division (an all gay 90s rock band)
Willie: Space Ace (Gay, Ace, nonbinary)
Reggie: Bi Bi 8 (Bisexual demiromantic)
Luke: Why is Everyone So Hot? (Panromantic, ace, trans)
