In this series, Gosha Levochkin features string-cheese-like characters with big boots, tall hats, and wide eyes who find themselves in inexplicable predicaments. New York–based, Moscow-born Levochkin paints them in gouache and watercolor, following the ligne clair (Tintin) tradition with bold colors, even lines, and no hatching. They evoke classic 2-D animation (Levochkin worked in a Korean animation studio for seven years), outsider art, and surrealism. The pictures seem like panels in a never-ending comic book, or stills from a maniacal Nickelodeon cartoon that probably shouldn't be shown to kids. In one, a stringy-person takes a selfie with a noose around its shapeless neck, rump, pertly out-thrust, as a tiny alien rides its back. It sounds like satire, but the effect is even weirder, as if whimsical imaginary friends from childhood had come of age in a hellscape.
