The Art of Cecilia Pego, Mexico’s “Graphic Novel Diva”

Michael Dooley, at Print magazine, has a two-part interview with C.S. Pego, who has been called, Mexico’s “graphic novel diva.” She has certainly carved an impressive niche for herself. She began as a political cartoonist, evolved into doing a noir comic strip and is now writing a fantasy series with exquisitely hypnotic artwork. The first book in the series is “Exilia: The Invisible Path” and you can find it here. Her art is, at turns, mysterious, sexy and quintessentially Mexican.

Mr. Dooley’s interview is an in-depth look at a respected artist in the graphic arts as well as an artist to make Mexico proud. For the interview, this is part one. And this is part two.
