This is the kind of things that we are all the more excited to get behind and share with you all.
The concept behind “Women Who Draw” is simple: it’s a self-described “open directory of female* professional illustrators, artists and cartoonists.”
The asterisk in that statement is very important. Women Who Draw is trans-inclusive, the organisation notes. As a result, it has one succinct goal: to create a platform for women, trans and gender non-conforming illustrators find work, find each other, and continue being creative around the globe.
“Women Who Draw” originally launched in December of last year, but due to an overwhelming number of submissions in a 24-hour period, co-founders/artists Wendy MacNaughton and Julia Rothman opted to relaunch in 2017.
WWD now has around 700 active members, with 300 more on a waiting list ― interested artists can sign up easily online this very moment.
