All female Ignatz award presenters the brain child of Liza Donnelly
Kudos to New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly for showcasing the growing number of women in comics.
“I was given the opportunity ahead of time to select the presenters for each award to be given,” Donnelly tells Comic Riffs, “and I decided to choose all cartoonists who are women. More and more of us are now in the business, unlike previous years, and I wanted to celebrate that fact by bringing attention to it.
“Many cartoonists came up to me afterwards – men and women – to thank me for doing that, it was great.”
