page from my sketchbook

Lauren R. Weinstein

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.

Clients include,, The New York Times, Glamour, and The Paris Review.

I also teach teens and adults at School of Visual Arts. 

Currently I am working on a teenage memoir tentatively entitled, How To Draw A Nose.
