Isabella Rotman is a girl from Maine who lives in Chicago and spends most of her time drawing. She draws comics and illustrations and sometimes she writes but usually she doesn’t. She spends a lot of time taking the skin off of birds for the Field Museum of Natural History, collecting useless objects found outside, and researching the mating habits of various animals. This is a drawing of her in a deer suit, trying to look scary. Most of the time she draws herself with antlers. Here self-published works include “Girls on Girls: an Album of Girls Singing Songs About Girls (with Amara Leipzig),” “Animals Sex,” “Eyes Shut,” and many others. You can see her stuff at ThisMightHurt.Tumblr.Com and Artic.edu/~irotma.
