ENTROPY is a San Francisco based artist. She has a background in street art and earned her Ph.D. in art education. Using her sensibilities as an artist, she imagines the future after civilization, as we know it has vanished from earth. She brings to mind that everything we need to survive can be found within us. We have a tendency to hold to the familiar. But when we move forward, life unfolds and transformation becomes possible.
This book is the second part of a series that began with "Queen of Hearts", my sketchbook project from 2018. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world. It is the personal journal of a girl, called Entropy, which grew up surrounded by death, danger and desperation. Her mother does her best to protect her from monsters and the toxic city. But Entropy develops her own value system and way of looking at the world rather than believing what her mother told her. Unlike her mother, she is a wanderer, on a search for herself and the truth. Entropy is facing her demons and I really believe in her. She is a character who is capable of guiding people in their personal journey and I wanted to share that with others.
I tried to bring the reader into Entropy’s mind. Her artistic tools are very limited, since she is living during the end of the world. My graphic novel mimics the experience of a found sketchbook, ink pens and watercolors for her journaling. I developed a new style with very reduced colors to bring her story quickly to life.
