Sophia Foster-Dimino: STREP THROAT zine

Work / Illustration

Illustration: Holy crapballs Sophia Foster-Dimino is incredible at drawing

Usually illustration provokes a really happy feeling in me, a feeling of envy mixed with passion and cheer. Sophia Foster-Dimino’s is probably the first I’ve seen that brought me really, really up and then super down because to be honest, why bother doing anything or looking at anyone else’s drawings anymore because it will never be as good as this? We found Sophia through Pitchfork Review creative director Michael Renaud who commissioned her to do a comic for their latest issue. What a great move that was, although that wasn’t her first commission by any means – she’s been a Google Doodler in San Francisco for years. How cool is that? Her work is some of the best I’ve seen in such a long time, a sparkling bag of Rookie, teen films, Moomins, Chris Ware, Studio Ghibli and lobsters. What a woman. More please.
