Tsurumi's comics deftly combine stunningly beautiful imagery with wildly funny commentary about life as she observes it. The result is a comic style that somehow manages to be ridiculous and sublime, combined with a sense of humor that is both silly and wry. Tsurumi's comics cover topics as diverse as poodles, brassieres, sports fans, pie, the Civil War, and how to swim.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The humor is more playful than biting, but even the slightest ideas are made enjoyable by the artist's outstanding pen-and-ink linework. Publishers Weekly"It's a hilarious collection of comics that will take your imagination to quirky new places." - People I Think Are Cool"Let me warn you in advance that if you are going to read Tsurumi's books, your dream-life will probably never be quite the same again." Hannah Means-Shannon, Bleeding Cool"Delightfully bizarre and fiendishly imaginative" Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier"Her sensibility, delighting in what might seem mundane, can resonate with people of all ages. It's almost as if Tsurumi is sharing secrets of the world's possibilities, and it's exciting to behold" Samantha Maldonado, Harvard Magazine"The shorts and one-pagers in WWYDT range from sight gags, to acid trip-level weirdness, to memoir-esque reflection on self and place. Tsurumi's work is layered, and what is especially striking is her ability anchor images of larger-than-life women in swimming pools, or poodles full of people, in human emotion and real life situations." Mel B, Mel Reads Comics"It's an absolutely beautiful and haunting work, and yet its contrasting tone to the rest of the book manages not to stand separate, but rather brings everything together." John Seven, The Comics Beat"Her work is immersive in the best sense of the word as you get lost in it as you would a compelling piece of performance art." Henry Chamberlin, Comicsgrinder"It's a hilarious and bizarre satire . . ." - Rob Clough, High-Low
