There is nothing in this world more meaningful and amazing than love. But sometimes, as these dark and whimsical comics remind us, there’s also nothing more painful. Gypsie Raleigh from Portland, Oregon, is an artist, author, poet and playwright.
When asked what inspires her, she said to Bored Panda:
“Sometimes life leaves me speechless,”
“When I fail to find the words, I try to find an image that can speak in my silence. My drawings have been inspired by everything from the deaths of people close to me, anxiety, and my own broken heart–to seeing an old bird cage or having a bad work day. I turned to art, because my parents raised me off grid in the Mount Hood Wilderness, and there wasn’t anything better to do. At the time, I was just sad that I didn’t have friends. Now, it’s a way of life.”
