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.

Upcoming events

The Inking Woman Exhibition @ The Cartoon Museum
Apr 26 – Jul 23 all-day
The Inking Woman Exhibition @ The Cartoon Museum

This fantastic exhibition of British women cartoonists and comic artists is running at the Cartoon Museum from 26th April. It features work from over 80 women cartoonists from the 18th Century onwards. The scope is really huge, from political cartoons and satire to long-form storytelling and graphic novels. I am excited to have work exhibited along with a whole host of amazing artists such as Kate Charlesworth, Karrie Fransman, Hannah Berry and Posy Simmonds!

This is definitely a must-see for anyone even vaguely interested in comics, cartoons, drawing or art generally.
