Julie Houts' colorful illustrations subvert familiar beauty and fashion ideals with humor and commentary. Her gestural lines and wash-style shading speak to the tradition of classic fashion illustration, while refining the form's scope of subject matter and giving it an immersive emotional register. Somewhere between a cartoon, a fashion sketchbook, a self-portrait and a dark confessional, Houts' works are entirely singular. At times personal, the narratives she captures in one cell playfully yet skillfully remark on the perils of "girl world" and its aesthetic powers.
