Sarah Winifred Searle - Illustrator and Cartoonist

Sarah’s resume is nothing short of impressive. She has contributed to countless projects, cartoons, books, and television shows. Critics bow to the Harvard graduate, relenting to her superb artistry and storytelling. Am I gushing? I should be. This visionary is my cousin and I am so unbelievably proud of her! Though she's way beyond my influence at this point, I will take credit for introducing her to Riot Grrrl during her formative years, haha.

Hailing from spooky New England, I’ve been overenthusiastic about visual storytelling, digital media, and education in a professional capacity since 2006. I work as a cartoonist, writer, illustrator, and graphic designer.
