…So it is with faint disappointment that I have learned that Pizza Island, the happened-to-be-all-female studio in Brooklyn, which consists of Kate Beaton, Domitille Collardey, Sarah Glidden, Meredith Gran, Lisa Hanawalt, Julia Wertz, and Deana Sobel, will be disbanding at the end of the month after two years.
All the artists remain friends and are continuing with their work, though Beaton is indeed returning home to Canada, and Glidden will be Artist-in-Residence at Angoulême, France for the next 7 months (go see her photo journal of a day walking around the town!) I wish them all the best and look forward to everything this lot of talented ladies will unleash upon the comics world!
Aw, it’s true, Pizza Island is over, although it didn’t really sink in until I was cleaning up my desk today.
Read our scandalous reasons for disbanding here. I also like Julia’s post about it.
It’s been really nice reading all the sweet comments about our studio and seeing how psyched people were about it. This might be the funniest comment we received:
Oh, a dude, don’t be sad! We probably were.
