Gemma Correll

According to Gemma Correll, world renowned Artist/Cartoonist/Writer/Illustrator, she has bad eyesight. Thanks to the wonders of spectacle technology, however, she manages to hold down a full-time job as a freelance cartoonist slash writer slash illustrator and bumps into things only occasionally.

Gemma is the author of several books, including “The Worrier’s Guide to Life”, “The Feminist Activity Book” and “A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette” and has illustrated various things for clients including Jetblue, Keurig and Hallmark. She publishes comics on The Nib and GoComics and also creates autobiographical diary comics. She is also responsible for that “Pugs Not Drugs” T-shirt design that you’re sick of seeing everywhere. Gemma is the proud owner of two pugs – Mr Pickles and Bella – as well as an impressive collection of plastic snowglobes. Originally from England, Gemma currently lives in Oakland, California.
