Hello! My name is Laura Terry.

I work (and play) as an illustrator and cartoonist in Brooklyn.

After a childhood misspent raising pigs, selling hot-dogs, and drawing princesses, I ran away to the relative splendor of an all-girls boarding school and wore many shades of plaid.  This was followed by an extremely long drive to New York, where I studied painting at Pratt. I took my BFA and wandered from Ireland to Texas, to Portland Oregon making comics. Eventually I ended up at the Center for Cartoon Studies, where I received my MFA in cartooning.

Now, I spend my days in the company of a poodle named Muffin drawing comics. My graphic novel Graveyard Shakes will be published by Scholastic in 2017!

If you would like to commission work from me, or just have a question, send me an email.
