B. Sybil the Lamb // Professional of Arts
Sybil Lamb has worked for over a decade as a self-styled underground documentarian of the rare and beautiful characters of underground and edge culture, the recording angel of a particular milieu.
Her detail obsessed scenes and hyper articulated portraits collect stories and characters from all around North America to document the lives and cultures of nomadic squatter Punks, the many facets of historied yet evolving extremes of trans culture and the modern artists and inventors underground.
Like a dream about what happened just before you fell asleep, Lamb is at once familiar yet somehow more, invoking the viewer on multiple levels with a recognizable yet “otherly” visual semantix. Her detail-obsessed narrative genre scenes told in a high resolution vision of high contrast over saturated color contrast her chaotic, elusive and gritty subject matter. Thusly Lamb uses her studio method to turn unlikely people and settings in to something in between cartoons, diagrams, and graphic design. Upon perusing any number of Lamb’s deeply imaginistic images it becomes evident that there is a highly personalized coded richly woven tapestry mythos of girls demons punks robots spare parts and clues hidden in trash.

D. Sybil Lamb
While best known for everyone having thought that her berzerker punk memoir I’ve Got a Time Bomb was the best gonzo sci-fi of 2014, Sybil Lamb also wrote and illustrated a “kid’s book,” The Girl Who was Convinced Beyond All Reason That She Could Fly. She takes every illustration job she can get and has put her art on everything from a cider bottle to album covers, a steampunk Children of Mars role-playing game, and some serious journals of psychology and literature. She is even slowly hand painting each card of a 96-card tarot deck. Her driving passion is the post-apocalyptic best frenemies adventures in her webcomic The Lost Little Girl Show In the Year 19999. She lives in an enormous and tiny cramped attic hideout in Sandwich Town, Ontario. See tons of Lamby art at sybillamb.com
