Over the course of a single week, she underwent 11 root canals, a full-mouth reconstruction, and surgery on her gums.
On top of that, an anti-anxiety drug intended to take the edge off the trauma instead caused her to suffer through a series of frightening hallucinations. The pop-surrealist and native Angeleno, known for her cute-meets-macabre style and, more recently, her dystopian interpretations of popular fairy tales, turned the psychologically transformative experience into a fairy tale all her own.
The page illustrated book The Cabinet of Dr. Deekaythe first installment in a series about a boy named Alex who wakes up in a dystopian hospital to discover pieces of his person are missing, is being released later this summer.
She answered some questions via email about fairy tales, the fear of falling apart, and the sad state of dental care for creatives. Is it more creatively fulfilling to create your own fairy tale?
Even though I really enjoy illustrating the fairy tales, I was a bit frustrated with interpreting the Cinderella story, and it occurred to me how many of these fairy tales are written by men, from more of a male perspective. I am fortunate to live in a time where women do have the freedom to create their own stories.
I think we have very few examples in history of women writing and illustrating their own fairy tales.
I also read that J. How does The Cabinet of Dr.
Deekay reflect your own experience of having traumatic dental surgery? The Cabinet of Dr. Deekay is a story that came to me in a weird vision a few weeks after having a terrible experience that was really made so much worse by being given the pill Ativan.
I had an atypical reaction to the drug that caused me to hallucinate and have suicidal thoughts. I realized the experience of feeling like your mind is being erased could be used as a greater metaphor for history being erased, land being erased, people being erased. So the story became greater than myself and felt more like an allegory for our modern civilization.
I think for many creatives, things like health and dental insurance are not readily accessible. Again this is, I think, such a universal problem in this country, and one of the main themes in the book is the fear of falling completely apart, either physically or mentally.
When is the book officially being released? Will there be future installments of the The Cabinet of Dr. I imagined this book as a trilogy but to be honest, I would love to write this series for the rest of my life. Some of my greatest inspirations come from Dystopian fiction.
