Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is

Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Begin with three years' worth of confiscated notes, secret scribblings stolen from the students of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Add Jason Holley, the Clayton Brothers, Jonathan Rosen, and a host of other visionary doodlers. Gather around a large kitchen table and see what happens. The result: sloppy, beautiful, enigmatic, and totally awesome.

Synopsis:

As a substitute teacher in Los Angeles, Trinie Dalton found herself required to confiscate the notes passed among her students. What began as disciplinary action soon became an obsession, and after three years Dalton had amassed hundreds of notes. The best of these were then sent to twenty-four artists, visionary doodlers who illustrated, interpreted, and reimagined.  The results are collected in Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is: sloppy and beautiful, familiar and enigmatic, a semester of extracurricular activities.
 
Contributing artists include Jim Drain, the Clayton brothers, Jonathon Rosen, Marcel Dzama, Kevin Christy, Jason Holley, Leanne Shapton, Jacob McGraw-Mickelson, Leah Hayes, Leif Goldberg, Calef Brown, Joel Smith, Martha Rich, Esther Pearl Watson, Paper Rad, Shelley Dick, Mark Miller, Misaki Kawai, Justin Wood, Gary Taxali, Rachell Sumpter, Mike Shaub, and Ashley Macomber.
