Review quote

Praise for Exquisite Corpse "Penelope Bagieu has mastered a magic trick, and it is this: Somehow, even as she suspends our disbelief, she can turn paper into flesh. And ink becomes lifeblood...her characters not only breathe and pulsate with vivid life. They also seem entirely, organically authentic in their own skin." --The Washington PostPraise for California Dreamin' "Bagieu's drawings are superlative: soft pencil lines that convey detail without constraining her figures and that animate the characters' exuberant facial expressions." --The Paris Review
