Author: [Original Comic Art] Seda, Dori
Title: Dori Seda Pen and Ink Self-Portrait
Place Published:
Publisher:
Date Published: 1987
Description:


Ink and correction fluid on bristol board. 14" x 15". Signed, dated and titled: "Self Portrait / Sept. 22, 1987 / © 1987 Dori Seda." Excellent condition, masking tape ghost marks to margins, a few light fox marks. With original heavy cardboard mailer addressed "From: Dori Seda / To: Water Row Press."



A rare original self-portrait by Dori Seda, one of the brightest lights of the alternate comics scene before her early death, just five months after this portrait was completed. her signature gap-tooth is prominently featured in the illustration. Seda appeared in the short film Gap-Toothed Women, and also drew the film's poster art.



In the movie, Seda explained that her "funny teeth" made her feel like she was not inherently "valuable." She found a sense of value in the work she created in spite of her gap, saying she was "kind of glad that [her] teeth are like this, because if I had nice straight teeth, I might never have done anything."
