Adorable and irreverent, ‘Just Encased’ has short but meaningful message

Just Encased
Art zine, Danielle Susi, @daniellesusi, $7

“I know my origins may be a little questionable,” a pleasant anthropomorphized hot dog says, “but I wanted to take some time to tell you about myself.” Danielle Susi’s short zine shows a cute little hot dog with arms and legs, illustrated by Siobhán Gallagher, explaining how it came to be as a “tubed” and tough amalgamation of different animals. It is an irreverent, yet meaningful allegory for all the parts that make us whole, served up as a very easy read. Simple, clean and to the point.
