Emily Kesselman (pen name, Emily K) is a cartoonist and illustrator based in Philadelphia, PA, whose work puts a spotlight on marginalized communities, courageous (often unsung) historical figures, and nerdy pop culture. Projects include webcomics “sad/funny/true” and “places you find cats,” as well as contributions to the anthologies Dirty Diamonds and Votes For Women: The Battle for the 19th Amendment. In addition to updating her online comics, Emily continues working on her original Jewish fantasy graphic novel, The Gathering of Sparks.
