We are a small team of professionals creating a better world one cartoon at a time.

She is the recipient of the David C. Evans Award for Outstanding Achievement in Creative Arts, The Chandler Award in Art, as well as two Arts & Sciences Research Fellowships from the University of Richmond. Liz is currently working on her first book, a young adult graphic novel for Random House, with publication planned for fall 2022. She fundamentally believes in representation, accessible information, and drawing your feelings.
Cleo Montague joined the team in August 2019 and quickly established herself as a star. Prior to this position 5-year-old Cleo did a quick stint at the Humane Rescue Alliance but left due to creative differences. Her hobbies include sprinting around the apartment, refusing to eat Trader Joe’s brand cat food, and waking up at 6:35 am sharp.
