“When visual artist Tina Martel was diagnosed with Stage Two breast cancer she decided to document everything. Throughout her treatment she created a stream of sketchbooks, photographs, paintings and video, in response to and frequently in spite of what was happening to her.
Not in the Pink is a “graphic narrative” of the pain, frustration and frequent hilarity of her day-to-day dealing with the eccentricities and bureaucracy of the medical system. It is also a candid and moving exploration of the expectations often placed on you once you are diagnosed with cancer: by the people around you, by society and ultimately by yourself.
Awards: CIPA EVVY Book Awards: The Colorado Independent Publishers Association awarded Not In the Pink two 1st Place awards in the Memoir and Illustrations categories and a 2nd place in the Health category. International Book Awards (2015) Not In The Pink has been a finalist in two categories — Art and Health/Cancer. Readers’ Favorite Book Awards 2015: Bronze placement in Non Fiction/Health.”
