Karen Rubins

I am a comics creator and illustrator living and working in London, UK. I have been making comics since the beginning of the century, and enjoy collaborative storytelling in all its forms. As well as writing and drawing, I run workshops, clubs and courses for all ages.

Welcome to my website. Have a look around at the artwork, read about what I’m up to in my blog, or find out how to hire me for your project.

I am currently accepting illustration and comics commissions, and am available for workshops, talks and courses throughout the year.

Please see the About me page for more info, or contact me here.
