Bio: Seattle cartoonist and illustrator Ellen Forney compiled her weekly comic strips into the Harvey- and Eisner-nominated Monkey Food: The Complete 'I Was Seven in '75' Collection (Fantagraphics Books). She created a one-woman, multi-media reading/performance based on the book, toured the show in nine US cities in 1999, and has also performed the show in Vancouver, Canada and in Portugal at the XI Salão Internacional de Banda Desenhada do Porto. Tomato from Starhead Comix was her solo comic book back in the mid-nineties, and she's contributed to anthologies such as Savage Love and Dyke Strippers.

More recently, Ellen has been been drawing a more journalistic comics series - How D'ya Do That?, a monthly full-page comic featured in Seattle's The Stranger. She is also published in Out, Pulse!, Bust, and Nickelodeon Magazine. Ellen is currently working on a project called Big Paintings of Sexy Women.
