Today, we are celebrating International Women’s Day (March 8) by commemorating the outstanding achievements of our many female cartoonists!
On the verge of releasing her very first book, Adulthood Is a Myth, Sarah Andersen (Sarah’s Scribbles) has taken the millennial generation by storm, her frank take on the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life making her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.
Gemma Correll (Four Eyes), another hugely popular millennial cartoonist, published her hilarious book The Worrier’s Guide to Life last May, and is never afraid to let her quirky, unique personality shine in her work. In a recent interview, she advised aspiring cartoonists to “Take time to find your own style.”
One young woman you should certainly be paying attention to is Izzy Ehnes (The Best Medicine Cartoon). Recommended to us by Pearls Before Swine creator Stephan Pastis and Nick and Zuzu creator Nick Galifianakis, Izzy is one of the youngest cartoonists ever to bring her talent to GoComics.
