Athena Naylor

Is a Cartoonist and Illustrator based in Washington, D.C.

Athena grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and now lives and works in Washington, D.C. She specializes in autobiographical comics and illustration. She also specializes in being a giant nerd. Athena received a Master’s in Art History from The George Washington University in 2017 and, unsurprisingly, wrote her thesis on comics. More of her writing involving comics can be found here and here.

Chances are if she’s not drawing, she’s probably reading, analyzing movies and popular culture, or amateurishly playing the guitar.
