About Claire Mead

Hi I'm Claire and I am the creator of the webcomic Girls' School of Knighthood! It follows the story of Cassidy, a bard who loves telling tales of valiant women knights. But does she have what it takes to become one when she joins the Girls’ School of Knighthood?

The webcomic is a part of a bigger love story of mine via the art I share online via Twitter and Instagram: creating stories around women with swords...and women loving women. And women loving women with swords! As a independent curator I share knowledge around historical women with swords and arms & armour from a feminist perspective via podcastingvideos and talks. This research informs and inspires my art and stories.

By supporting me on Patreon you support my flourishing sword lady artistry and storytelling. Access webcomic bonus art and behind-the-scenes peeks and have a look at my current art and projects beyond Girls' School of Knighthood. And you get my thanks and gratitude for supporting my dream of putting more queer sword lady stories out into the world!
