Featured artist, & previous poetry contributor GM Spear, decided to hit up Mad Swirl again from her small town in New York – and boy are we glad she did! Needless to say, this chicks got some mad talent; featuring her was a bit of a no-brainer. Take a look for yourself and try to tell us these realistic pieces with varying degrees of trippy, surreal touches aren’t right up our alley. In a few that you’ll see, Spear plays with white space in a very compelling way, featuring young girls with entire stories of their own, it seems. She captures their energetic, free & truly adorable excitement perfectly – and with a twist; some of em you can’t even SEE. If that sounds weird to you, it’s cus it is! Would we really ever bring you anything that wasn’t? Have a gander at the magic GM Spear brought to the visual stage this month, we promise if you take a look, you’ll be hooked! – Madelyn Olson
