Meet Elizabeth Graeber.

Takoma Park, MD

Elizabeth Graeber is an illustrator and artist based just outside of Washington DC who has produced illustrations for clients such as Warby Parker, NPR, the Washington Post, and more. Elizabeth produces zines, coloring books, and small guides that she sees as visual, fun, and unique objects.

What was your introduction to the world of art book publishing?

I self-published a book called An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails and sold it on my site. After that, I started making more zines and coloring books and visiting book fairs like the Prints and Multiples Fair at Open Space in Baltimore and the DC Art Book Fair.

Your favorite art-related publication or art exhibition from the last year?

There is a nicely designed and colorful magazine from Australia called Hello Lunch Lady. Another was an illustrated zine called Fashion Forecasts by Yumi Sakugawa

Do you have any upcoming projects you would like to share?

I have a show at the Quirk Gallery in Richmond through February 18. On February 17th (and maybe 18th), I will be drawing custom portraits of people and animals.
