Arianna Margulis & Dru Radovich:
Arianna Margulis & Dru Radovich:
writer/artist: Margulis, Arianna is currently navigating New York by way of Suburban Detroit. Favorites include oreos, crop tops, chokers, and moscow mules. BLM began as her instagram account, doodled from real-life experiences and questions about life, boys, and stuff. BLM is Arianna’s imaginary best friend and confidant. She hopes to remind everyone they’re not alone in this frapped up world; writer/colorist: Radovich, Dru: prides herself on being “real” despite growing up in Laguna Beach. She loves laughing, lounging, and self loathing. Dru is wondering if she still has fingerprints after texting through shards of glass on several cracked iPhones, and if lack of fingerprints will help her get away with more stuff. She is grateful for BLM, allowing her to work out awkward (charming) moments through writing. The comic book was born from the success of @butlikemaybe's Instagram, created by cartoonist Arianna Margulis. Dru Radovich produces and writes with Arianna, and comic veteran Brian Phillipson (and his company Bliss on Tap) is producing and publishing.
Arianna and Dru met in LA through mutual friends... at a hip hop class of all places. It's been a bi-coastal creative love affair ever since, kept alive via google docs, Facebook likes, and sharing the same sense of humor. Dru and Brian work together at new movie studio STX Entertainment.
