Illustration: Daniel Clowes meets the Riot Grrrls in illustrations by Anna Deflorian

What do you get if you chuck Daniel Clowes’ Ghost World, a handful of Riot Grrrl records, and three pristine, porcelain China dolls into a blender? We don’t have an exact answer for you, but we can imagine that you’d probably end up with something along the lines of these illustrations by Berlin-based Anna Deflorian. Not only a talented illustrator and graphic novelist, Anna’s also directed an amazing animation for His Clancyness, which traces the adventures of a girl band whose stern faces, chunky clothes and relaxed demeanours recall the all-female rock band The Shaggs. We love these wonderful, witchy drawings and bright, bold comic strips, and will definitely be keeping an eye on what Anna gets up to next.
