Meet the Team

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

Liz Montague

Cartoonist/Graphic Designer/ Artist/Human

Liz Montague is a D.C. based cartoonist for The New Yorker and a digital storyteller for an international development foundation. She fundamentally believes in representation, accessible information, and drawing your feelings. Liz is the first black female cartoonist to be published in The New Yorker.

Cleo Montague

Studio Assistant/Security/Cat

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.
