Cartoonist and graphic artist
Jennifer Camper is an openly lesbian comics artist, graphic artist and editor residing in Brooklyn, New York. Her art examines gender, race, sexuality and politics, especially from the viewpoint of a Lebanese-American gay woman. She has been producing comics since the 1990's. Her comics and illustrations have appeared in magazines, newspapers, comic books and anthologies, and her art has been exhibited in the US and Europe.
Her books include "Rude Girls and Dangerous Women", a collection of her cartoons that mix humor with political commentary, and "subGURLZ", a graphic novel following the adventures of three women living in abandoned subway tunnels. Jennifer is also the editor of, and a contributor to "Juicy Mother", the important anthology of queer comics. It is the first anthology of queer comics to have appeared since the release of Gay Comix, edited by Howard Cruse, which was first released in 1980 and appeared throughout the 1990's.
Two volumes of "Juicy Mother" have been released so far. The first, entitled Juicy Mother: Celebration, was published by Soft Skull Press in 2005. The anthology was a finalist for the 18th Annual Lambda Literary Awards in the 'Humor' category.
The second volume appeared in 2007, published by Manic D Press and subtitled How They Met. This edition was substantially larger than the first and included even more artists and writers. Juicy Mother 2 is one of the finalists for a 20th Annual Lambda Literary Award in the 'Anthology' category.
