VANESSA DAVIS

Today's Mail Order Interview is with the very talented and very lovely Vanessa Davis.  Vanessa is a quick witted Los Angeles based illustrator, cartoonist and comic artist.  She's incredibly talented and, after having met with her for coffee and talking about art and life and being a lady in this crazy day and age, I can say that she is also an incredibly wonderful person.

What could make Vanessa even more amazing?!  How about the fact that she's a published illustrator, cartoonist and comic artist - her most recent publication being Make Me a Woman.

It was actually Make Me a Woman that introduced me to Vanessa's work.  I was a newb to Los Angeles and decided that the best first place for a single lady about town to visit would be a comic book store.  While perusing the shelves of Meltdown Comics, I came across a brightly colored image of a girl painting her toenails on the toilet - something I had done hundreds of time in my 27 years on this planet.  The title also really grabbed me - could someone else know what it's like to feel old enough to be called a woman, but feel like a kid inside?  As I looked through the pages of the book I couldn't believe how much I related to this Vanessa Davis person.  She had to be awesome.  It was a few months later that I had the privilege of sitting down to coffee with Vanessa confirmed her awesomeness.  Vanessa, thanks for what you do and thanks for being you!!
