The title says it all, but Scurti has an autistic sister and draws a gorgeous piece about the many levels – from society’s disdain to her own shame – of difficulties the mentally and physically challenged must face.
You can see more of Scurti’s artwork at her website. It’s gorgeous. She’s also dawn several issues of Tales of the Night Watchman and she draws FABIOLA & YLINI for Oni.
