This project was started, in 2015, as an attempt to close the gender gap and build a stronger creative community. Today, we have well over 1,300 members in our directory. Whether you are holding a conference and want to find talented women speakers or to get in touch with other ladies in your field, feel free to browse. If you identify as a woman and want to be included, please add your name here.
Women In Animation
Women Who Draw
Women Who Draw is an open directory of female* professional illustrators, artists and cartoonists who take freelance work. It was created by a group of women artists in an effort to increase the visibility of female illustrators, with an emphasis on female illustrators of color, LBTQ+, and other minority groups of female illustrators. We hope this directory will be used by publishers, art directors and editors to find less visible illustrators, and encourage them to work with these illustrators more frequently.
