What compounds and frustrates the Gina character too is that she has more avenues and outlets to connect to sex than ever, via the internet, dating apps, etc. The blackest humor here lies in the chasm between theory and practice: desperation spirals, the grotesquerie of her drawings increases. The book also rides out the cresting wave of the Risograph aesthetic, with pink and blue coloring, for a pleasing, sometimes teenage diary-esque effect. However, there are still small moments where empathy not sympathy, which so much new work stabs at takes hold: take for example the panels where she struggles to pull her sexiest dress over her body, or caking Teenage Spirit on under her shirt.
Bow down to Gina as she explores what it means to be horny as hell! An intense, weird, vulnerable dive into the underbelly of young adulthood. Paste Magazine Absurdly honest.
Gina Wynbrandt photo by Matt Soria. In one of my favorite panels of Someone Please Have Sex With Me , artist Gina Wynbrandt has drawn herself in blues and pinks, shoving a spoon into her mouth. Released in May by 2dcloud, Someone Please Have Sex With Me is a five-comic collection, filled with vignettes about celebrity worship and sexual desperation from a virtuosic artist. Now the Chicago-based artist has published her first book, too. And, man, I really love this book.
