Lauren Davis


Who I am
I'm a Bay Area-based writer, editor, cartoonist, and blogger.

What I do
I'm currently a student at the California College of the Arts' MFA in Comics program. It's pretty much as cool as it sounds. My classmates and I call ourselves The Biscuit Beast Appreciation Society

You may also see me hanging out with the wonderfully talented creators at the Couscous Collective.

Where I've been
I went to college at Brown and concentrated in biomedical ethics. While in Providence, I worked as a DJ and producer at WBRU.

After Brown, I went to Georgetown for my JD. I never sat for the bar, and my law degree has mostly been used contemplating the important questions, like whether fan art is legal.

More recently, I've worked as a writer and editor for the speculative fiction site io9 and writing for geeky sites like ComicsAlliance. Webcomics and short films are my jam.

What I've done
I co-founded thisisby.us. It's no longer around. I also edited and published The Comic Book Guide to the Mission, an anthology of comics about San Francisco's Mission District. It's full of awesome people who are way more talented than I am.
