From Jason Little, author of the Ignatz Award-winning Shutterbug Follies, comes another exciting "bubblegum noir" graphic novel, originally serialized in the acclaimed webcomic Bee!

Eighteen--year--old Bee has finally saved up enough to embark on her long--planned cross--country bicycle trip. However, she doesn't make it very far before disaster leaves her stranded at a motel. Her hormones surge when she meets a misunderstood young artist on a mission to "upgrade" the banal "artwork" that hangs on the walls of every motel room. Taking a job there as a housekeeper, Bee snoops around in the motel's dirty laundry and finds herself entangled in a scary drug deal gone dangerously wrong.

Featuring gorgeous artwork balancing grit with cuteness, Motel Art Improvement Service explores crime, young love, and the purpose of art, in a story that's equal parts thrilling, funny, and sexy!

"Jason Little is one of the comics world's most ingenious cartoonists."
--Scott McCloud

"Stylish and graceful, Little's figures and compositions suggest a grimier urban version of Belgian comics master Hergé's classic Tintin books."
