Editorial Reviews

No matter what medium, her [Lapalme's] works are day brightening and delightful." - Rachel Davies,Rookie"In the squishy, malleable bodies that rollick across the pages of Confetti, Lapalme has distilled all the pop ephemera of childhood - Lisa Frank sticker books, tie-dye T-shirts, Barbapapas, cootie-catchers - into something potent and exuberant." - Sean Rogers,The Globe and Mail"[Lapalme's] aesthetic is all about pastel colors, cats, and talking pussies. It's all really cute and neat to look at." - Nick Gazin,VICE"Ginette Lapalme is one of those talented artists who works in a variety of mediums and is that good that she excels at all of them." - Zainab Akhtar,Comics & Cola"It is a goal of mine to live alone in a big house surrounded by the work of Ginette Lapalme, kind of like a cat lady, but with drawings of cats instead of real cats. Taking in every detail of one of her zines turns me into a kid in a candy store; decorating public spaces with her stickers makes me feel like Santa Claus. Utterly delightful but never too cute, the world Lapalme has created leaves me more attuned to the perverse beauty of the one around us." - Tavi Gevinson, founder and editor ofRookie"I love Ginette Lapalme's work. It takes a cute and femme aesthetic and uses it to make sinister, smart and sexy images. To me her work is not about subverting feminine aesthetic but embracing it fully - as a powerful, complex and beautiful thing." - Amy Lockhart, filmmaker, animator and artist; Drawn & Quarterly published their monographDirty Dishes in 2009"Ginette Lapalme is the most powerful of all the Etsy witches of the Great North. I have procured an array of her zines, jewellery and mechanical poodles and they are all total DISPLAY ITEMS.Megahex (Fantagraphics)"
