About the Author

Disa Wallander is a Swedish cartoonist living and working in Stockholm. She loves to make zines and experiment with bringing collage and 3D materials into her comics. In her early twenties she read some philosophy books that suggested that nothing was real and ever since then she has made comics with the compulsion to affirm the existence of the world inside her head. Her sporadic comic strip Slowly dying features an array of nameless characters that also appear in the long-form books The Nature of Nature and Becoming Horses. Her work has been featured in various anthologies such as NOW, kus!, Drunken Boat, and Nobrow Magazine.

Reviews

A fantastic exploration of movement and form. Evokes equal parts Jules Feiffer and Tove Jansson.--Michael DeForge, author of Leaving Richard's Valley.

I wish Disa Wallander's images could be eaten or stolen or inhabited. Because I find them so beautiful it hurts to have to settle with just looking at them. But the greatest thing about her book is that it talks about exactly that--the fact that we humans would sometimes like to inhabit works of art or become horses, and that these desires are as comforting as they are painful.--Julie Delporte, author of This Woman's Work
