every time i’m scrolling thru my tumblr dash and see a post and then think “what the fuck is this shit?” it always ends up being a “you might like this blog!” or a sponsored post :-/
tumblr just leave me alone ok! as much as you’d think i’d like it i promise you i’m NOT interested in what the jogging has to offer
Also I still have these 5-7 layer screenprints for sale if the original artwork is too steep for yah! (understandably!) I think by default I ship prints in a mailer tube but if that’s a problem let me know and I can ship ‘em flat, might just be an extra few bucks.
Just sorta living paycheck to paycheck right now and could use a lil’ help from my good friend paypal this week soooooo feel free to peruse the store if you’re feeling generous :)
ATTENTION COMICS LOVERS ATTENTION: I AM DOWN TO THE LAST TEN COPIES OF GUT FEELINGS!!!
Book details: Gut Feelings - A collection of short comics by Leah Wishnia. 6”x 9”, 72 pages, Full-Color matte-finish Cover with B&W interiors, perfect bound. Released November 2013, edition of 350. $6 + shipping!
“On the surface, Leah Wishnia’s anthology GUT FEELINGS visually reads as a tornado of frenetic and (at times) grotesque imagery, brimming with a stream of both rambunctious and tortured characters who are pitched in a mosaic of revolving hallucinogenic experience … A vocal promotor for the use of comics as means to critique society in all its forms, Wishnia is vibrantly aware and entirely unapologetic of the subjects she tackles in GUT FEELINGS, her artistic voice echoing a resounding deference to the idea that “the political is personal.” A combination of memoir, dreamlike make-believe, and penetratingly raw humor, her collection introduces Wishnia as a promising cartoonist and storyteller, paving a future for budding artists to create material that is richly thought-provoking and resisting of the status quo.”
