Cold Girl, ongoing

An illustrated experiment offering things “for moments that matter (sometimes).”

Cold Girl is a darkly humorous and candid digital illustration sharing the journey of a girl coming of age on the internet. Cold Girl was a response to projected, as well as self-inflicted relationship dynamics with friends, family and societal constructs. By making things for moments that matter (sometimes), Trishia was able to alchemize these relationships into crucial conversations. These items, mainly illustrations, were —and still are—distributed freely via Instagram.

Over time, Cold Girl has expanded into greeting cards and limited zines via Etsy, and a Patreon experiment questioning our idea of value and resources. All materials given to Patrons are also available for free. Some of these include: Protest Protocol—graphics detailing ways to protect yourself based off of conversations with organizers and activist friends, and Coloring Quarantine —coloring pages to pass the time during a global pandemic.

Cold Girl is dedicated to the parts of us we don't know yet, may be embarrassed to share, and our desire to be just a little bit better—even if it doesnt look like it all the time.

Materials: iPad, alcohol, social situations
Lesson: we’re not crazy, we’re emotional.

 

 

Cold Girl

An illustrated experiment offering things “for moments that matter (sometimes)."

Cold Girl is a darkly humorous and candid digital illustration. Sharing the journey of an autobiographical character in 2017, Cold Girl was a response to projected, as well as self-inflicted relationship dynamics with friends, family and societal constructs. By making things for moments that matter (sometimes), Trishia was able to alchemize these relationships into crucial conversations. These items, mainly illustrations, were —and still are—distributed freely via Instagram. 

Over time, Cold Girl has expanded into greeting cards and limited zines via Etsy, and a Patreon experiment questioning our idea of value and resources. All materials given to Patrons are also available for free. Some of these include: Protest Protocol—graphics detailing ways to protect yourself based off of conversations with organizers and activist friends, and Coloring Quarantine —coloring pages to pass the time during a global pandemic.

Cold Girl is dedicated to the parts of us we are embarrassed to share, our most destructive self critic, and our desire to do just a little bit better.
