It would be wrong to dismiss Donya Todd's (some images NSFW) comics and illustrations as cute pictures of pretty girls. After all, her ladies, with their big lips and wide eyelashes, are often flavored with touches of manga and early animation. But on closer inspection, her pictures, filled with coffins, pizza, rainbows, skeletons and nightmarish creatures, feel like folk art from Todd's personal mythology, a peek into a brain obsessed with mysticism, pop culture and otherworldly landscapes.

Todd's latest comic, Death & the Girls, is a debauched tale involving anthropomorphic washing machines, deities infected with venereal diseases and hotwired donkeys, and is currently available from Blank Slate Books. You can see more of her work on her website and Tumblr, and buy her artwork (including handcrafted pizza earrings) on Etsy.
