Julia Scheele is a freelance illustrator (and graphic scribe with Scriberia) who lives in London and also draws comics, which she has been doing regularly, passionately, and against all odds since 2008.

She has recently illustrated Queer: A Graphic History, written by Dr. Meg-John Barker and published through Icon Books. The book is available in all good book stores and also through Amazon!

Past clients include The Guardian, Kerrang!, VICE, BBC4, The School Of Life, Damn Fine Media, The Edinburgh TV Festival, Open University, the NHS, Bloomberg, Red Bull, Graze, Edelman UK, Lidl, Josie Long, and Ruby Tandoh, and her work has been featured in The Guardian, VICE UK, Dazed Digital and Digital Arts.

Her comics work has been published in various anthologies, such as the Thought Bubble anthology from Image, and British anthologies such as Solipsistic Pop, The Strumpet, Steak Night, Paper Science, and ink+Paper.

In 2010, she worked as Jamie McKelvie’s art assistant on the Image series Phonogram: The Singles Club, written by Kieron Gillen, and has also contributed a back-up strip in issue 4 of Phonogram: Immaterial Girl. She is currently working on a 5-part comic series called Metroland with Ricky Miller and Avery Hill Publishing.

Apart from all that, she runs One Beat Zines together with Sarah Broadhurst. One Beat is an intersectional feminist zine collective and distro that also does talks and workshops – there is a lovely write up about us on Dazed Digital over here.
