New York, USA
Five days a week, Maritza Lugo selects a curious Tweet and illustrates an imaginary world behind it. She finds most of the Tweets on her own, but will occasionally use one sent by friends or followers. The drawings are posted on Hello Giggles, an entertainment site founded by Zooey Deschanel, Sophia Rossi and Molly McAleer, which offers a fresh take on humor and entertainment.
As the site describes:
Everything hosted on the site will be lady-friendly,
so visitors need not worry about finding the standard
Boys Club content that makes many entertainment sites
unappealing to so many of us.
Influenced by her favorite artists (Don Decarlo, Roy Lichtenstein, and Dali) and writers (J.D. Salinger and Bret Easton Ellis), Maritza’s daily visual take depicts a funny, poignant and often complicated world expressed by others through their Tweets.
