The Art Of Kaye Blegvad

Kaye Blegvad is an illustrator, designer, and “general maker-of-things”, as she says about herself, in the third person. Her illustrations depict mostly women, in various situations, in a blunt, sometimes brutal matter. But her works have a certain (dark) humor, that goes wonderfully with her drawing style, making the entire experience very pleasant, comfortable, and very amusing.

I find it frustrating that if you’re female, whatever your work; people are going to ask how it relates to your female-ness. Every woman artist everywhere is always being talked about in the context of being a woman, whereas male artists are just talked about in the context of their work. That imbalance gets exhausting. [...] I think there’s a lot of darkness, a lot of struggle, a lot of pressure and weird shit that goes on with being a girl. I don’t ever want to draw blandly happy, sexy women. I want to draw tough women, sad women, violent women, vulnerable women, righteously joyful women. It is what it is. (via dailymetal)
