GURLS Volumes 1 and 2 are available now! Each one is 70 pages. And yes, the snarky captions are included in the books, for those of you that have been following along with this series. My best advice is to read the snarky captions in Bobby Brown’s voice (you’ll see what I mean when you get a book in your hand).
My show in Cologne, Germany just came down but original drawings can be purchased thru both FB69 Galerie locations and from me directly.
There are also prints and products, such as this “get well” card via my Society6 Shop.
The books are extremely limited and honestly, I probably won’t be doing them again. Not unless a proper comics publisher wants to do an anthology. I’m participating in my first ComicCon by doing GenghisCon is my old studio building Sunday, November 26th in Cleveland. There may or may not be some Pumpkin Spice lattes and a selfie stick!
Across both books, there is only one drawing that depicts something that actually happened. The rest are just things I imagine someone is saying somewhere, right now. Some of the better quotes I’ve actually heard would need context and a preface — I was too lazy to bother with that. So don’t feel personally microaggressed by these drawings. It’s called being “basic” for a reason!
After much pestering from a lot of people, I’ve gone ahead and made the reprint of GURLS, as well as for GURLS volume 2!
They will be released November 15th, 2017 which is earlier than I had anticipated but hey, makes a good Christmas gift, right? The last two runs sold out within 9 hours, and over a weekend respectively, so this way you are guaranteed a copy.
By the way, the show GURLS has been extended at FB69 Galerie if you would like to purchase an original. Here’s a new interview in Scene Magazine about my GURLS, btw!
I’m headed to Germany for the first time since I was a toddler!
My solo show GURLS opens with a preview Thursday, April 13th from 6-8pm (first 20 people get a signed mini print) and then the reception on Friday, April 14th at FB69 Galerie in Münster.
We will have limited copies of my sold-out zine on hand, as well as a show of all my drawings. There will be posters for sale, too! I hope to see you there, and I’m really excited to spend some time in this city.
GURLS was conceived in sketchbooks while Arabella was recovering in bed from multiple surgeries, and oil painting was no longer an option. Sarcastic, silly, and in a loose style that deviates from the painting she has been known for, her GURLS comment on the current state of technology, relationships, and “first world problems”.
