Gypsie Raleigh is an artist, author, poet, and playwright from Portland, Oregon. She creates dark and whimsical comics that serve as poignant reminders that while love is fantastic, it can also be cruel and painful.
More from the artist, in her own words:
Sometimes life leaves me speechless. When I fail to find the words, I try to find an image that can speak in my silence. My drawings have been inspired by everything from the deaths of people close to me, anxiety, and my own broken heart–to seeing an old bird cage or having a bad work day. I turned to art, because my parents raised me off grid in the Mount Hood Wilderness, and there wasn’t anything better to do. At the time, I was just sad that I didn’t have friends. Now, it’s a way of life.
