Gloomy Girls

Like a catchy pop song (with sad lyrics), "Gloomy Girls" is an illustration series which explores the concept of melancholia in a slightly humorous, can't-stop-singing-along kind of way.  Depressed females sit gloomily over unanswered texts, missed connections, and bad breakups, alongside wilted flowers, un-watered houseplants, and bouquets bound for the rubbish bin.  Painted in electric bright acrylic hues, the series juxtaposes pop colours with depressive characters, eye-catching with a twist.
