Great visual directory of women illustrators

Women Who Draw has a seemingly endless directory of women illustrators. I love looking at artists portfolios and I could spends days going through the ones here.

  1. Are these commercial illustrators is what i'm understanding? Because i don't see Kate Beaton, and she's my spirit animal. Though she mainly does comics and the like (she should totes be on that list though).

  2. A directory of great artists, for sure, but not a great directory. I couldn't find a search feature, just browsing, and the weird re-shuffling of the profiles while scrolling was discombobulating. Also, a more apt description would be that it's a directory of female freelancers for hire, or female illustrators currently alive/working. more of a "behance with a theme" than a "wikipedia page of notable X." (just bitter that I couldn't find Trina Schart Hyman or Janet Ahlberg...)

    @Grey_Devil and @robw, from the "about" page:

    All women* professional illustrators are encouraged to participate. Simply follow the directions on the JOIN page.

  3. Pia guerra, a woman, is one of the pencilers for Y The Last Man. Does that count? :smiley:
