Lucky by Gabrielle Bell

Lucky by Gabrielle Bell

With a subtle humour, Gabrielle Bell documents the details of her mundane, below-minimum-wage, 20-something existence in Brooklyn. Her simple, unadorned drawing style, heavy narration and biting wit chronicles transient roommates who communicate only through post-it notes and aspiring artists who sublet tiny rooms in leaky, broken-down border-house lofts crawling with bugs, cats and bad art. Bell’s daily comics allow her to escape the harsh, judgemental gaze of the world and the monotony of daily life. Her unpolished art speaks to a desire to record all the messy details while the pain and confusion is still fresh.
