Let's work together!


Lara (she/they) is an award-winning cartoonist and illustrator who loves black humor, black coffee, and colorful characters. Their debut graphic novel, Ronan and the Endless Sea of Stars, was the recipient of the  2023 Graphic Medicine Award and a finalist for both the Ringo Comic Awards and Pop Culture Classroom's Book of the Year. They regularly contribute comics to The Washington Post in their news, opinion, and travel sections and were included in the Best Illustrations of 2022. Their clients include Google, and Dotdash-Meredith, and they've been featured in The Wall Street Journal, WNYC-NPR, Kirkus, and more. If you dine in NYC you might see one of their infamous Choking Victim posters. They are also a creative producer on the Witch Wave Podcast, hosted by Pam Grossman. Hailing from Wisconsin, they currently live in Brooklyn with their almost-toothless chihuahua, Chuck.
