All drawings above by Grace Miceli
Grace Miceli is probably one of the raddest girls on the internet right now. She was born in Chicago, IL and currently studies at Smith College. I hope I am as cool as she is when I am in college. Grace cites one the biggest influences on her work as the episode of The Simpsons when the dolphins takeover. The dolphin motif is carried out throughout a lot of the collages she does but my favorite art that Grace makes are her drawings. When making the moodboard of my favorites for this post, I couldn’t stop thinking “Grace, knows my life too well.” All of her drawings satirize teenagers and pop culture so well. Forget having your portrait drawn by some stuffy Renaissance painter, I want to be cool enough to have my own Grace Miceli portrait. There were too many caricatures to count that I wanted to include so you’ll just have to check out them out on her website after you finish reading this. Grace even does other drawings like one of Tia and Tamera Mowry from Sister Sister, a girl with angst saying “whatever mom,” Andy Warhol, Disney Channel Gurlz, prom girl , and feminist icons like Gloria Steinem, Yoko Ono, and Kathleen Hanna.
On her website, Grace just released sticker packs of her images for purchase and I am freaking out. As soon as I get my allowance this week I am going to spend it on Grace’s Mall Goth and Clueless and Andy Warhol stickers!!! She also sells a Hey Net Girl Hey coloring book zine and a Digital Valley Girl coloring book zine.
For more on Grace check out her website and go buy her stickers and zines here!
UPDATE: Grace saw this post and made me my very own drawing… I AM FREAKING OUT! I am happy to see that my barrettes made an appearance.
