Art of Nicky Rodriguez, Zines & Comics

Nicky is a queer Puerto Rican comic artist, flatter, and colorist. She is the creator of two webcomics, The Unlucky Ones and the Edge of Nowhere, and, The Smoke in the Mirror, and the illustrator of Con Papá/With Papá, authored by Frederick Luis Aldama. In 2018, she started making autobiographical zines exploring mental health, the impermanence of time and memory, her existential ennui, and the meaning of home and homesickness in connection to being of the Puerto Rican diaspora. She continues to explore these subjects in her fiction comics, looking to find ways in which traditional comic narrative form can be deconstructed through depictions of ephemerality as it relates to emotion, memory, and time. She holds a BFA in animation and MFA in comics from California College of the Arts. She is also an anime/manga features writer for Comic Book Resources.
