Will Dinski's long-awaited return to long-form comics following 2010's Finger Prints sees not only a dramatic shift in style, but approach to storytelling as well. Fo-cusing on the meteoric rise of a stand-up comedian as told by the people in his orbit, Din-ski's ability to create a layered, nuanced narrative is in top form with Trying Not to Notice.
Will Dinski is an illustrator, cartoonist, print-maker, and graphic designer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Winner of the Isotope award for excellence in Mini-Comics in 2009, his debut graphic novel, Finger Prints, was published by Top Shelf Productions in 2010.
