Wash Day by Jamila Rowser & Robyn Smith ′17 wins DINK award

A Denver Independent Comics and Art Expo (DiNK) Dinky Awarded to Wash Day!

by Jamila Rowser and CCS graduate Robyn Smith ′17. Edited by J. A. Micheline.

Wash Day is a slice-of-life comic that pays tribute to the beauty and endurance of Black women and their hair. The story follows Kimana, a 26-year-old woman living in the Bronx, as she cares for her long, thick hair. As Kim goes through her Sunday morning rituals, we see the highs and lows of her day—fresh coffee, rising rent, girl talk and catcalls.

DiNK’s annual DiNKy Awards commit to recognize excellence, promote independent comics from a diversified group, and create a level playing field in which work is judged for its merits, not the strength of its marketing campaign.
