Jennifer Camper is a cartoonist and graphic artist living in Brooklyn, New York. saturdaysnatch.jpg

Her art examines life from a perspective that is irreverent, female, queer, and mongrel (Lebanese American). Her work often explores gender, race, class, and politics, as well as sexuality, mermaids, and robots. She’s also a teacher, a cartoon editor, and the creator of the Queers & Comics Conference.

Her books include Rude Girls and Dangerous Women, a collection of her cartoons, and subGURLZ, a graphic novella following the adventures of three women living in abandoned subway tunnels. She also edited two Juicy Mother comics anthologies. Her cartoons and illustrations have appeared in numerous publications, and have been exhibited internationally.
