Elizabeth, Fat Girl

Back in 2003, my husband Matt and I collaborated on a few comic book stories.  He wrote them, and I drew them.  I am a fan of comics, especially off-the-beaten-path stories. As I am not a comic book artist by any stretch of the imagination (drawing and lettering comics takes special skills I have never developed), I only completed one of the stories: Elizabeth, Fat Girl. As you will see, the drawing is stiff.  I borrowed heavily from sources like Daniel Clowes' Ghost World and the Hernandez Brothers' incredible Love & Rockets series.
Below is Elizabeth, Fat Girl:


  1. Boo,I really enjoyed the Elizabeth cartoon. Your drawings are fantastic. You and Matt have a good collaboration there. Keep up the good work. Love, Mom
