I was fortunate enough to see a Dame Darcy performance at Fort Thunder years ago and got to meet the gentle and creative artist. Looking around for this week’s blog, I was sadly not surprised to find that the world of comic books and graphic novels is largely a man’s world. So refreshing, then is Dame Darcy and her decidedly different approach to the genre.
Her Gothic tales and her exquisitely intricate illustrations are all her own and she certainly deserves more praise and recognition. She is the author of Meat Cake, a comic book series of odd and dark tales that has been compiled by Fantagraphics. She also meddles in doll making, film making, and music.
Be sure to visit her website and get inspired by this visionary woman.
