Mady G’s illustrations are seriously a blast! Beautifully inked with smooth, exaggerated expressions, their art takes me back to 90′s cartoons like Ren & Stimpy or Rocko’s Modern Life. But with a nice queer twist!
Drawn in the same cartoony style, their autobio comics literally feels like reading a page from a diary. I feel like I’m invading their personal space as they discuss intimate thoughts on anxiety, depression and more importantly, their identity as a nonbinary trans-person. And unlike most diary comics explaining events in an artist’s life, reading Mady’s comics feels like having a close friend confide in you.
Because of Mady, I’m on a quest to read more nonbinary identity comics (I’m open to recommendations!) <3
My pal Mady G (great cartoonist who interned for me way back in 2011) is in this documentary about Drag Kinging. Also a dude called ERIC VON FABULOUS is in this documentary, too. I really dig everything Mady does. Their tumblr is here!
