ABOUT JULIA SCHEELE

I’m a freelance illustrator (and graphic scribe with Scriberia) who lives in London and also draws comics, which I have been doing regularly, passionately, and against all odds since 2008.

I have 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, The Edinburgh International Television Festival, Kerrang!, VICE, BBC4, Radio Four, The School Of Life, Damn Fine Media, Open University, Close Up Research, the NHS, Red Bull, Graze, Edelman UK, Lidl, Josie Long, and Ruby Tandoh, and my work has been featured in The Guardian, VICE UK, Dazed Digital and Digital Arts.

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

In my spare time I run One Beat Zines, a zine collective and distro together with Sarah Broadhurst.
