Details

The Depression-era story is about a young writer hired to be a newsaper advice columnist. The desperation and sorrow of the letters he receives drives him into a deep depression, and he tries different methods of coping with the outrageous injustice of the world. But the story is also very darkly comic, which is what drew the creator into it.

Gabrielle Gamboa's work employs a personal lexicon of symbolism pulled from family history, rock and roll memorabilia, catholic iconography, and underground comic books to explore issues of cultural and ethnic identity, myth, and memory. She prefers to use traditional materials such as graphite, chalks, ink, and oils in contrast to the unconventional subject matter she enjoys.
