Parts comic, parts art dump, and parts fine art, Damien Le’s last trade zine is a good mix of sketches: works that didn’t fit into any other zines, but are great nonetheless. His work is both intricate and simple—both at the same time and separately—and it’s fun to look over his illustrations and enjoy every line. His illustrations are fantasy nudes, and strange body distortions that could make some great framed artwork despite many being unfinished pencil sketches. His first comic in the zine is touching, and makes one think of what we may have missed in the company of others. You think about what was left unsaid, and the implications of what we share, and how it disappears. –Iggy Nicklbottum, (Damien Le, damianle.com)
