"Somehow when you look at Bailey’s characters you can see the way they carry their weight, their heads turn long around corners, there’s lots of bloop movement, even though the drawing is static it’s also animated. Her drawings explore how we all have strange power and consequence even through the goo of our alienation."
- Sam Wallman
