When The Lily launched, I wanted to find a way to incorporate comics as a method of storytelling, specifically on Instagram. The traditional comic strip form was practically made for Instagram's slideshow feature.
After endless hours, which turned into months scouring the web and Instagram – I found Katie Wheeler. The Lily is so lucky to have her. She made all my comic dreams come true. She brings an authentic and fresh voice to her autobiographical comics that really resonates with our audience.
I now work with several comic artists on a monthly basis, representing a broad spectrum of women and personal experiences. See some of their work below.
PS – you a comic artist? Shoot me an email me at rachelanneorr (at) gmail.com. I would love to hear from you. Also if you have any graphic novel recs, I’m all ears!
