Rachel Surnow’s solo show titled “Attachments” opens January 24, 2015 from 7pm to 10pm at Meltdown Comics and Collectibles. There will be a series of new illustrations, drawings, and prints.

It’s about the pains, the pleasures, the sins and the sinners. It’s about what you told me 2 years ago… 2 hours ago… Or maybe it’s about what you never said. The memories I’ll keep, and the ones that I’ll let go of. It’s about you. About me. Our secrets.

Rachel Surnow is an LA based illustrator and designer. She received her BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2013. For the past several years she has been exploring her style and pushing the concepts of distortion, femininity, and the unconventional audience.
