“These simple – clever – vivid – fantastic watercolor & ink pieces make me want to giggle. a lot. and i don’t think it’s the 3 hours of sleep in 48 hours thing… although it could be. doubtful…... “ Scoutie Girl Blog
“From a former immigration lawyer who, despite zero formal art training, got ‘her balls out of her purse’ and started making watercolor/ink/charcoal prints inspired by butcher diagrams, Drywell attempts to identify the ‘meat-analogous sub-components of everyday life,’ though everyday life would suck if your sub components were only ‘meat-analagous.’” Thrillist, New York
