Erik Nebel

[Originally written as part of a comic library blog/fundraiser.]

I originally found Nebel’s work on Tumblr. (Is it too early to say RIP to Tumblr?) Their linework is open and clear, the colors are bright, and the characters seem to have stepped out of their own unique ecology. While the comics are superficially childlike (or maybe childrens-book-like), they seem to explore things like sex, illness, dysmorphia, and death; the creatures are constantly joining, changing, being consumed and extruded and shaped by external forces. And it all happens without any text.
