Beautifully crude, rude and lewd drawings from Joan Cornella!

For me, coming across Joan Cornella’s collages are something of a love-at-first-sight situation — the picture I first saw told a brief story about a man being shot in the crotch by a pink bear in a tree, who then runs over to lend him a tampon. It’s hard to say exactly why these gruesome tales are so pleasing, but I guess it’s something to do with how they’re simultaneously so well-drawn, hilarious and colourful. We don’t know much about Joan, but if you’re reading, get in touch! We want to pick your brains (and then leave offerings of candles, beads and small snacks outside your house).
