Finally posting the photobooth photos from Drink and Draw Like a Lady 2013!
This was a really fun party, with tons of amazing, brilliant, talented ladies.
I love these photos! Everyone happy and clowning around for the camera. Photobooth photos are some of my favorite kind, because it allows the gaze of the camera to be controlled by the subject in a way that claims the image as a self-portrait.
Relatedly, women who make comics sometimes are placed behind a lense of gender, and that’s where marginalization can occur. Having this party— this celebration and opportunity to chat and feel together— by women and for women, is an important part of what I love about comics.
I was so pleased to chat and laugh among these talented and interesting ladies, and I hope to see you all again in the years to come!
