Quinne Larsen’s ink illustrations on paper have a hint of the graphic novel, innocent fairy tale scenes with a perturbing patina. She is interested in storytelling, and especially capturing stories in the middle of the narrative in single illustrations.

“I like the clarity. Cartoons and the kinds of ink-heavy styles used a lot in comics are meant to tell a story; they’re clear, they’re there to give you a certain amount of information in a stylish, but easy to read way. There’s a lack of pretense there, in that kind of style, that really appeals to me. It’s friendly. It wants you to ‘get’ what it’s saying.” Quinne Larsen
