He Said She Said
Chick lit meets graphic novel in this addictive collection of naive felt-tip drawings, paired with typed fragments of stolen conversation. Artist Daisy de Villeneuve has created a sensation in the fashion and pop art worlds with her dynamically sketched faces of teens, which have adorned fashion ads, shoebox tops, clothing, and now her own line of housewares. Drawing on her influences, from The Bangles to Roy Lichtenstein, de Villeneuve has created a totally unique look with a decidedly retro vibe. The characters in He Said She Said, her first book, are by turns ruefully humorous and determinedly feisty, each speaking their piece in short, insouciant bursts. Scribbled on lined paper and possessing the furtive appearance of pages torn from a diary, the colored, spiked, and adorned faces in these pages muse dispassionately on themselves and one another -- and in doing so touch on the timeless bewilderments and longings that exist between the sexes.
