Explorer hats at the ready! 

Sarah Evenson's anthropology-like instincts have caught our eye. Each illustration explores a facet of the inbetween, blending notions of pseudo-science and an irreverence toward tradition. Her love for paper making adds an artifact quality to her work.

Drawing from her queer identity, Evenson believes the inbetween to be "a place of pain, growth, and beauty."

The formation of paper from swirling pulp adds a transformative quality to her work, wherein she not only wills a drawing into existence, but creates its foundation.

Evenson has several zines, and works with storytellers and writers on a regular basis. Taking elements of traditional myth construction, Evenson reflects our curiosities.

Evenson's exploration stretches past her characters and into a realm of environments. Think of all the firsts the world has seen and how we factor into it. Below are pieces made with photolithographic transfer, gouache, and graphite.
