A sophisticated YA graphic novel about body image, social media, and the invisible forces that shape the way we think about ourselves.


“Unretouchable perfectly utilizes the form to talk about the consequences of images and how they can be manipulated.”―SCREENRANT

Olive is spending the summer before art school at a coveted internship, helping one of the fashion industry's elite digital-imaging specialists. After a glamourous New York photoshoot, she learns that taking pictures is only the first step. She discovers the "violent verbs" (cut, crop, slice, lasso) of image retouching software and the secrets behind "virtual models."

Soon Olive is fixating on her own appearance and pondering the ethics of her work behind the scenes. As college gets closer, she'll try to get out of her own head, attempt to quit the Internet, and finally embrace image-making on her own terms. 
Unretouchable is a window into the little-known, hugely influential world of fashion photography and a tribute to self-acceptance.
