Artist’s Note

Brooke is an illustrator and cartoonist who aims to create work at the intersection of comedy and current events. Her selection of cartoons on the theme of "Recovery" touches on the exhaustion of change and how very ill-equipped we are in coping with it: as we go back to "normal" socially, and also as we challenge the idea of institutionalized norms. She hopes to capture a comedic side of this shared experience. You can find more of her work in The New Yorker, The Drift, Private Eye, and Wired.
