Katie Parrish creates complex, moving comic works. Over the past year her output has exploded, and her subject matter has branched out in all directions to keep up with her relentless fine liner.

Human stories seem to be the jumping off point. My favourite series involves the juxtaposition of text from her personal diary entries with images of sex workers in action. Whether the incredibly personal and fascinatingly unique inner thoughts of her many all-too-human characters are real or not I guess we’ll never know.
