In The Artichoke, Verwho? transforms the act of eating an artichoke into sensual pleasure. Using the image of peeling, preparing and eating an artichoke, she takes the reader through a seduction of the protagonist, removing her hard defense to uncover her softness within.
When I received Verwho?'s zine, I wasn't expecting much. It was short. It was a comic. However, when I opened it up, I was amazed. Not only was her zine attractively illustrated, it was beautifully worded as well.
Damn, this zinester is cool. Check out her website and buy her art: www.verwho.com.
