Nell Brinkley Poster

Nell Brinkley (1886-1944), often referred to as the “Queen of Comics”, was an illustrator and comic artist. Her work is mostly recognizable for her Brinkley Girls, women with curly hair, lacey clothing, and doing activities outside of the norm. To pay homage to the artist’s work, I collected scanned newspaper images (below) and used motif borrowed from “The Brinkley Girls”, a hardcover collection of Brinkley’s full-page art, and created a poster.
