The Unique Vision of Ruth Gwily


Here are the first four panels from a wordless strip by the wonderful illustrator Ruth Gwily. Ruth hasn’t updated work on her site for a while, and I’m tired of waiting for new things to post something about her, so I just decided to post this small teaser. Intelligent, off-kilter and infused with black humor, I love Ruth’s work and I think you’ll be intrigued by her unique stylings.
