Amplify Her is a documentary and storyworld exploring the lives of female electronic music producers and DJs, specifically how their identities as women imbues their work and affects how they experience and influence the EDM scene.
Part of the Amplify Her storyworld is a graphic novel, each chapter of which explores one woman's personal journey. As writer/illustrator for Team A Hundred Drums, my contribution tells the story of the professional abuse Gabrielle, a.k.a. A Hundred Drums, experienced when she broke up with her ex-boyfriend, a music producer.
As part of the project, the graphic novel will be animated by Jenn Strom.
The Amplify Her storyworld will be released in stages starting in Spring 2016.
My name is Lindsay, and I draw things. I graduated from Simon Fraser University and also studied at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and currently do freelance illustration as well as put out How Baby, a weekly comic about motherhood.
Other than drawing, I'm a nerd for tabletop and video gaming, cooking, geography, art books, and internet culture.
Largely, I like to use illustration to tell more feminist, body-positive, sex-positive stories that often feature gender and sexual minorities, non-white characters, disabled characters, and unconventional relationships. I love partnering with writers, editors, and publishers who strive to do the same
I am looking for both freelance opportunities and/or steady work in a creative role. I'm particularly on the lookout for anything that fits the above, especially where it intersects with motherhood.
I'd sure like to work with you! Please contact me for information.
