Comics Tue Jun 17 2014
Postcards from the Mess is a weekly poem-comic about and inspired by art/artists, music/musicians, performers/performances, etc. This week, it's about Nicole Ginelli.

I first became consciously aware of Nicole Ginelli's work after her recent performance at Brain Frame 18, but a strong sensation of the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon followed suit. She'd colored Ben Marcus' piece for the 2014 comics issue of Lumpen, and collaborated on an earlier glow-in-the-dark Brain Frame poster with its creator/host Lyra Hill. My artist friends kept uttering her name in conversation. I was delighted!
My comic this week is a response to her online Sundaes series, which you can access through Ginelli's website.
