Born on Long Island, illustrator Ellen Lindner studied art history and French at Smith College. As part of her degree Ellen spent a year in Paris, where she created her first comic book, an adaptation of The City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan. After graduation Ellen spent three years in the New York museum world before moving to London, England, where she earned her master's in illustration at Camberwell College of Arts. She has since published widely as a freelance cartoonist and illustrator. Ellen’s latest project is Little Rock Nine, a graphic novel about the American civil rights movement written by historian Marshall Poe, out now from Aladdin Paperbacks. This spring she’ll be self-publishing Undertow, a tale of Brooklyn in the early ’60’s.
