Julia Gfrörer lives on Long Island, where she maintains an extensive collection of black cardigans. Her work has appeared in Kramer's Ergot and Best American Comics. She pronounces her name "gruh fare" but you can say it however you like.
"Julia Gfrörer is amongst the most promising artist/authors of her generation. Her work is spare and elegant, yet the hand of the artist is always evident in her line. Her characters inhabit cold or desolate environments, often on the brink of inanition or beyond, yet still yearning to love and be loved. Do not be misled by this artist's sylphlike appearance and those great carrot-colored ramparts at her ear. Gfrörer is a powerhouse. Learn to spell her name." — Phoebe Gloeckner
