Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration



Thanks so much to Sara Woolley for the invite to be a part of this amazing group of women, talking comics and entrepreneurship at City Tech CUNY last night! And thanks for all the City Tech students and faculty, as well as members of the public, who came out to listen. Here's the link for the exhibition, curated by Sara.


Front row: Paige Pumphrey, Ellen Lindner, Lara Antal
Back row: Marguerite Dabaie, Sara Woolley, Micheline Hess, Laura Alvarez, (the legend) Alitha Martinez, Regine Sawyer, and Alice Meichi Li.





This is me and my former studio neighbor Lara Antal talking some serious comics business...and then losing it. That's my girl.


In other news I am fundraising for The Strumpet 5, and working on a new book proposal...good stuff takes time, but I'm eager for this to get out in the world and into editors' hands!

Strumpet 5 cover by Glynnis Fawkes, type design by Elliott Baggott.


Hi all! So much news here! The Strumpet is BACK! Visit our Kickstarter page now to grab a copy of The Strumpet 5 - Origin Stories! We have some truly amazing talent on board for this issue - thanks in advance for your support!


Thanks as well to the wonderful Aaron Williams, who interviewed me for his super-informative podcast, The Comics Manifest! Aaron has interviewed some amazing people lately - Johnny Ryan, Calista Brill, Robin Ha, Andres Vera Martinez and Reilly Brown to name just a few - and I feel really privileged to have my thoughts up in the Comics Manifest with theirs!
Listen here - thanks, Aaron!


But I haven't been just talking and fundraising lately (though those are important)- I've also been working on a new book! AND....drum roll please...attending my favorite NYC figure drawing session, Drink and Draw NYC, run by Mosaic artist (and karaoke legend) Khary Randolph. The models are always great - out-there costumes, ambitious posing, total dedication - and Amy Rose was no exception. See you there next time!

Hey! I entered the NoMAA Uptown Arts Stroll contest and while I didn't win, I had a lot of fun doing this drawing of three ladies out enjoying the Arts Stroll. *Plus*, it was good experience drawing on the Cintiq.


Congratulations to Alexis Agliano Sanborn, who took home the prize! See you on the Stroll!

Coloring for the Greatest Ever, Julius Zebra Author Gary Northfield [Mar. 8th, 2017|05:13 pm]
Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration
My first pass at coloring a strip of famed kids' illustrator Gary Northfield's for National Geographic Kids.


Every freelancer is a Jack-or Jane-of all trades, and one of the more enjoyable secondary careers I've pursued in comics is that of coloring stellar work by other creators (I'll tell you about the others some other time! :) ).


Over the years I've done quite a bit of coloring for my former studiomate, Gary's Garden, Terrible Tales of the Teenytinysaurs and Julius Zebra author Gary Northfield.


Often Gary has multiple deadlines at once, and the man can't do everything (who can?) So I occasionally step in and do the first pass on color for his illustration work.


Do you need a creative colorist to take the brunt of coloring a large job? Or do you have a complex short comic you need to complete on deadline?

Email me and I can quote you some rates for jobs of differing complexity!

Threadbare by Anne Elizabeth Moore, drawn by Julia Julia Gfrörer, Melissa Mendes, myself and more! [Jan. 7th, 2017|05:17 pm]
Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration



I drew three stories for the Ladydrawers' new book, Threadbare, and you can read a great review here from the LA Times!


Pick up a copy from Microcosm Publishing today! It's all about the labor abuses rife in the clothing industry, and how solving the problem can be more complicated than one would originally think. Threadbare features the journalistic work of Anne Elizabeth Moore, accompanied by illustrations and comics by Leela Corman, Julia Gfrörer, Simon Häussle, Delia Jean, myself, and Melissa Mendes.


Here's an image from my second strip:

Knit Now Editor and Writer Portraits [Dec. 2nd, 2016|06:49 pm]
Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration



I've worked for Knit Now for a few years, drawing different knitting procedures, and made my editor Kate Heppell and columnist Debbie Tomkies some portraits to say thanks for an amazing gig.





Here are some samples of the actual illustration - in each issue I illustrate 10-14 steps of the procedure being detailed.


As always I'm available for commissions - drop me a line at ellen at littlewhitebird dot com if you want a quote!
