The Fantastic Journey of Artist Edie Fake



I gotta say, most people in the business of art and illustration are rather easy to pigeonhole. I know I am. We do things, we get recognition for doing certain things and then we tend to do more of that thing. The way of the world right? Edie Fake does things. I’m not so sure that I can easily say the things that Edie does are this or that. Yes, comic artist. Yes, designer and illustrator. Throw in activist, performer, tattoo artist, author, historian, multiple award winner, screen printer…the list of things and accomplishments just seems to keep growing. Oh and the art? Everything from epic, deeply personal journeys into sexuality and gender, simple drawings to delicate and complicated visions of strange and wonderful creatures. Like I said. Fantastic things.
