“Tragic Girls” by Katie Mansfield

These retro-inspired comics are what constitute artist Katie Mansfield’s art and apparel brand. I initially found them from a blog I followed this summer, which I believe largely inspired me to take this class. The pop art-esque style and vintage look is what first caused them to catch my eye, but I love the whole concept. When it comes to art, I love the concept of making what is old new again, so these prints, which feature cynical yet relatable sentiments in present-day language, definitely struck a chord there.
