Violent Girls is a limited edition portfolio featuring 44 action portraits lovingly inspired by the kind of dangerous females who have populated pulp fiction and B-movies throughout the history of pop culture—blazing their way through every kind of genre, potboiler, cliffhanger, and fever dream imaginable.
Best known for the macabre whimsy of his many pop gothic graphic novels, including The Hidden, Delphine, and Cat Burglar Black, Richard Sala has also exhibited his artwork internationally and drawn illustrations for Playboy, Esquire,The New York Times, Google and Penguin Books. His fondness for embracing the campy and the absurd is reflected in his affectionate depictions of these lovely and deadly violent girls.
The lively original drawings of crisp, angular ink line-work and vibrant splashes of watercolor are reproduced with the utmost care on thick, acid-free sheets. The unique PadFolio format allows each archival print to be detached for individual use or to be kept intact in book form.
