New York Comics Community collection, 2001-2017

Weinstein, Lauren R.

I am a cartoonist, illustrator, painter and avid gardener who lives in scenic New Jersey with my family and dog, Dr. Buddy.

I have published three books: Girl Stories, Inside Vineyland and Goddess of War.

My work has been included in The Best American Comics, An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Kramer's Ergot, and The Graphic Cannon.

I have won and been nominated for an Ignatz. This year "Carriers" was also nominated for Slate's studio prize for Cartoonists. Carriers won a gold medal from The Society of Illustrators.
