Inspiration: Art

A Watercolor Diary

A Watercolor Diary | Doodlers Anonymous

I found Leslie Stein a few months ago through a series she posted on VICE called "Leslie's Diary Comics." Like the name suggests, it's about personal stories from her life told in a distinctive visual style. The heart of it is Leslie's personality, which comes across strongly in every comic and turns the stories about mundane little anecdotes into something surreal. The way her comics flow even mimics the haziness of recalling memories, since her minimal line work does not include any separation of panels to guide you from one moment to the next. It reads just like a stream of consciousness, following the flow of her colorfully lonely introspective moments. You can see what I mean below or on Leslie's blog.
