Item description for Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is by Lisa Wagner, Trinie Dalton & Eli Horowitz...

As a substitute teacher in Los Angeles, Trinie Dalton found herself required to confiscate the notes passed among her students. What began as disciplinary action soon became an obsession, and after three years Dalton had amassed hundreds of notes. The best of these were then sent to twenty-four artists, visionary doodlers who illustrated, interpreted, and reimagined. The results are collected in Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is: sloppy andbeautiful, familiar and enigmatic, a semester of extracurricular activities.
Contributing artists include Jim Drain, the Clayton brothers, Jonathon Rosen, Marcel Dzama, Kevin Christy, Jason Holley, Leanne Shapton, Jacob McGraw-Mickelson, Leah Hayes, Leif Goldberg, Calef Brown, Joel Smith, Martha Rich, Esther Pearl Watson, Paper Rad, Shelley Dick, Mark Miller, Misaki Kawai, Justin Wood, Gary Taxali, Rachell Sumpter, Mike Shaub, and Ashley Macomber.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is?

Full of feeling, but...  Jul 14, 2007
I was so excited about this book, and it delivered what it claimed. The art in this book is full of such a range of emotions it will take you back to high school and slap you with all of those feelings you thought you'd forgotten.

My only complaint? I would have liked to seen more of the original notes. I'm not sure if it's a privacy violation to print them, or if the author simply decided to leave a majority of them out for her own reasons, but I feel that they would have been more powerful on their own.
Heart of darkness.  Dec 2, 2005
This collection of artwork was inspired by a series of notes editor Trinie Dalton confiscated during her years as an LA-area substitute teacher. The 1-page pieces are manic and full of feeling; in them, bad grammar and sketchy sentiments become articulate, even eloquent. Flipping through this book is like taking a journey through the dark heart of modern American adolescence. It's sad, funny, and not a little scary.
