For everyone else, 

Hi. My name is Nicole J. Georges. I'm queer, feminist, vegan, Syrian-American cartoonist, teacher & podcaster from Portland, OR, currently splitting my time between there & Los Angeles.




I'm the author of the award-winning graphic memoir,  "Calling Dr. Laura""Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home",  the autobiographical comic book "Invincible Summer", and the podcast "Sagittarian Matters".

 I have been making & publishing my own art for over 20 years, and teaching for 17 of those. I like teaching comics & telling people how things work. 

I'm excited to make as much queer, feminist & animal-centric art as I possibly can in 2018!

I am on Patreon to share my art, the process, and chomeranian friend Ponyo. With you.

I want to work on graphic novels, podcast episodes,a nonfiction book & more.
These projects will take time.
Your support will help allow me the time it takes to begin and complete my tasks.

My workaholic Capricorn Moon thanks you in advance for the opportunity.

AND

THANK YOU FOR VALUING ART DURING THESE TROUBLING TIMES. (I know that was very Dr. Bronner-esque, to put it in all-caps, but seriously. Thank you.)



*******************************************************************
Here are my plans for 2018:


COMICS:
I will collect my existing unpublished diary comics, draw new ones, and work on my next graphic memoir book proposal ("My Straight Year"). I will also work on adapting my book, "Calling Dr. Laura", into an animated feature.

GENDER BOOK:
I will fly around the country to interview young people about gender with Judith Butler and Kenneth Corbett for an illustrated non-fiction guide for youth.


SAGITTARIAN MATTERS:

I will continue to make my podcast, Sagittarian Matters. I will keep flying around the world to interview interesting artists and feminists from different disciplines (people like Ian Mackaye, Eileen Myles, Alison Bechdel, & Corin Tucker),and create a space for queer regulars like Michelle Tea, Beth Ditto, & Rocco Kayiatos to offer advice to callers.

LIFE WITH PONYO
I will continue to dance with my dog Ponyo & enact key scenes from musicals with her as my muse. Sometimes I will film & post it here. 

ANONYMOUS FUZZBALL
My series "Anonymous Fuzzball" features animals at group therapy, delivering their own experience, strength and hope. I would like to keep these going and compile them into a book, and/or calendar.

Thank you for the billionth time.

and wrapping my head around creating a new collection of unpublished diary comics.
