A quick Cintiq trace I did of a photo by Michael Daryabeygi from the Women's March! Pictured (left to right) are the very powerful Lara Antal, Robin Ha, myself and Hannah Bae!

See you at the next March!

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!

US Launch For The Black Feather Falls, This Tuesday! [Mar. 25th, 2016|12:29 am]

I am sooooo excited to be tabling at MoCCA Fest, next weekend, and to be launching the COLLECTED EDITION of The Black Feather Falls!

It's a real pleasure to be able to share the complete story with readers. When BFF was nominated for an Ignatz award for best series, I think there might have been an impression that this was an open-ended narrative. But I always wanted to do a four part series, and Soaring Penguin signed on with that in mind.

Who knows if there will be a sequel? I already have an idea for a tale set in a city that has fascinated me for a very long time, Cairo! But for now, it's time to celebrate, eat some cake and party with friends and fans!

And so - please come to Lucey's Lounge this Tuesday, March 29th, 6:30-infinity, for a little MoCCA warmup action, and to take a first look at The Black Feather Falls, COLLECTED EDITION! If all goes well, I'll also have copies of Pitching A Fit in the Big City, my new collection of memoir comics!

Can't make it?

US folks: grab a copy in my Etsy!

UK folks: you can order it from Soaring Penguin.

You can also order if from a site that rhymes with "glamazon" (although where they got that frightful cover shot, I do not know!)

Regardless of where or how you get your mitts on a copy, I appreciate your support.

See you at Lucey's tomorrow, and MoCCA this Saturday!

I am so excited to have been chosen by Paul Gravett and Olivia Ahmad for the Comix Creatrix show currently at House of Illustration in London!

It's humbling to have my work side by side with so many amazing women cartoonists! And now there's a Comix Creatrix interview with me, Tula Lotay and fellow Strumpet Rachael Ball up on Alex Fitch's Panel Borders blog.

Happy Flapper-y New Year! [Dec. 30th, 2015|06:16 pm]
Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration

Happy, flapper-y New Year! It's been a fun one, hasn't it?

Thanks so much in particular to everyone who's been so wonderfully supportive as I completed The Black Feather Falls! It's been a long journey, but launching The Black Feather Falls at this year's Lakes Festival was a real high point of 2015 for me.

I've had a bunch of people ask how they can get their copy. Here's the rundown!

My Etsy Shop (This is the easiest way to get a personally dedicated copy, without waiting for spring conventions!)
Soaring Penguin (recommended for folks in the EU!)

Of course, you can also grab a copy from me personally! I'll be at MoCCA in the spring, with other appearances TBD!

Have a happy new year, you dapper people you!
