MAKER SPOTLIGHT: ingrid mouth art & comics

4

I make original art, comics, and zines that tell stories about queer sexuality, monsters, and talking cats. Most of my materials are found in second hand stores.

I’m a queer cartoonist who started doing sex work last year because my disability made it impossible for me to continue doing illustration work full time.

I recently chose to start showing art and comics under the same name I use for sex work. It’s started a lot of conversations about how people tend to be forced to partition their lives from sex work for safety and “respectability.”

I try to present myself and my work in an uncompromising, unashamed manner which hopefully adds to the pool of workers broadening our acceptance and similarly living openly and unashamed.
