Grace Wilson: Eyes Peeled

Work / Publication

Grace Wilson’s Eyes Peeled is a fantastically honest examination of her daily life

There’s no end to illustration projects that revolve around the observation of daily life – in fact that’s the main skill an illustrator needs to possess in order to communicate visually. And yet there’s surprisingly few that result in work as lovingly scathing as Grace Wilson’s. Her latest publication Eyes Peeled details the trials and tribulations of studying abroad, travelling the world and returning home to mundane conversations with parents huddled around pints in a pub.

The accompanying drawings are rough and ready; beautifully executed but not so aesthetically pleasing that they detract from the grubbiness of Grace’s stories – although, I’m not sure it’s really possible to make pissing on your legs in a Chinese public toilet look beautiful. Fast-paced, filthy and very funny indeed, this is one piece of print I recommend you get your hands on at your earliest convenience.
