Our second to last Spotlight goes to the leafy and lovely Kara Argue (kaargue), an illustrator and comic artist from Michigan! Kara says, “Lessa, the character I chose to illustrate for this zine, is my favorite rude heroine. Gentle stories have my heart, and so do tough little plants!”

  • Favorite childhood book: “Rowan of Rin, a thousand times over.”
  • Favorite work song: "’Fall Underneath’ by Snakadaktal!”
  • Fictional character you feel on a spiritual level: “Pearl from Steven Universe; we’re both a bit easily wound up and totally have a crush on Garnet! ;-)”
  • What are you working on right now: “I’m currently writing and drawing a webcomic called Arboreta! It’s a story about two kids and the roles they’re trying to devote themselves to. One of them has a sibling that’s 10 stories tall! The other one doesn’t. Check it out sometime!”

There are three days left to back our campaign and see Kara’s work in the flesh! Back the LADIES OF LITERATURE: VOLUME 2 Kickstarter ( before it ends!
