Sabrina Jones has been writing and illustrating comics since the Reagan era. As a young art student, she was alarmed by the threats to women’s reproductive rights, and joined a group of pro-choice activist artists called Carnival Knowledge. Wanting to cover women’s issues in World War 3 Illustrated, editor Seth Tobocman convinced Sabrina to create her first comic strip. She has gone on to edit and contribute to many issues, including Bitchcraft, Female Complaints, and Life During Wartime.
In the 1990s she co-founded Girltalk, an anthology of women’s autobiographical comics, published by Fantagraphics.
She created her first historical comics for Wobblies! A Graphic History of the Industrial Workers of the World, Verso 2005.
Her work for the Real Cost of Prisons inspired her to create Mixed Signals, a counter-recruitment tool in comic book form.
Her first complete book is Isadora Duncan, A Graphic Biography, Hill & Wang, 2008.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Sabrina moved to New York to study painting at Pratt Institute, and later got an MFA from the School of Visual Arts. She now lives in Brooklyn with novelist Steve Stern, and two cats, Percy and Jezebel. She paints scenery for film, theater and television, as a member of United Scenic Artists Local 829.
