Hey guys,
Great show! Good to hear a female artist on ISR.
Also, always great to hear Longstreth's voice! For me, he's like David Sedaris or Ira Glass [if there's any NPR listeners out there, you'll know what I mean]....such a distinct voice and always such enthusiasm! He's awesome.
Anyhow, I think as far as "Women in Comics" goes it seems for the younger generations and the more INDIE-type comic creators it MIGHT be leveling out a little more (male to female)...I'm sure the possibility of writing/drawing autobiographical work or more "regular" fiction is way more appealing then coloring or inking a story about "men in tights". Also it seems that there are a number of INDIE comics creators who went to school for painting and printmaking, more "fine art" type backgrounds [in recent years there's also been more and more cross-polination between the comics world and painting world]......and compared with the Joe Kubert School, I know at Mass Art (a neighbor of Liz's Museum School) the ratio of student was more like 60%-40% WOMEN to MEN (more women)...and I think that holds true for many art schools.
