Goodbye Salad Days: Kevin Faces Adulthood
Photograph by Traer Scott
Goodbye Salad Days: Kevin Faces Adulthood features a series of humorous handmade diorama scenarios in which the eponymous character, Kevin, faces the end of youth and the onset of whatever comes next. Life hasn’t turned out quite like Kevin thought it would—now he is struggling to manage dating, a dead end job, emerging gray hairs, and his mother’s constant pleas for grandchildren, along with a standard-issue existential crisis.
Goodbye Salad Days was released as a hardcover book by Chronicle Books in April 2021.
