Emily is an illustrator and cartoonist whose early childhood exposure to “Calvin and Hobbes” removed any hope of following a different career path. She grew up outside Philadelphia, PA and moved to the city proper after graduating from Tyler School of Art and Architecture with a BFA. Illustration is both a method of expression and a tool of activism for Emily, and she doesn’t shy away from controversial topics. Underrepresented communities and unsung heroes feature prominently in her portfolio, as well as a hefty dose of geek culture and a general love of animals. Her work has been exhibited at The National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and she has been featured in multiple anthologies. Today she continues to create new work exploring topics of identity and social justice, update her webcomics, and make progress on books such as her original Jewish fantasy graphic novel.
