Kyle Canyon presents the dainty diva Cutie Egg, an androgynous anthropomorphic egg teaching you to contemplate life and death in a time of desperate self-actualization. Cutie Egg is a collection of two-panel comic strips, illustrating the nonchalant vanity and cynicism of a feisty little egg, going about daily musings of existential ennui. In reality, this comic is a simultaneously humorous and melancholic manifestation of the creator’s own feelings of guilt and anxiety toward navigating identity politics and participating in social media self-representation. As readers, we can relate to the constant struggle between reliance and resistance toward perfecting ‘a networked self’. In the case of Cutie Egg, this struggle is emulated through its sassy defiance toward outside expectations. We follow as Cutie theatrically challenges the inevitable fate of becoming either breakfast or a chicken that perpetuates the cycle of an egg’s undead dread.

A DONKEY'S BURDEN
Wobby Magazine #29
A two color riso spread for Wobby #29 – Pumping Iron. Muscles, landscapes and geometric shapes: Wobby 29 is all about pumping iron. Muscular elves grace the cover. Inside: the wandering fool, the robotic body, and a touch of feminism. Quite a challenging issue for artists that commonly are “not really familiar with pumping iron and with sports in general”.
