Whit Taylor is a cartoonist from New Jersey. She likes to make memoir and slice-of-life comics that explore culture, race & ethnicity, mental health, and relationships. When not drawing, she spends her time working as a clinical health educator, trying to convince her co-workers of how cool comics are.
Primarily through the lens of her own experiences, Whit is able to tackle a lot of different issues. Her minicomics series, Madtown High chronicles her experiences as an adolescent. Her minicomic from Sparkplug Comics, The Anthropologists tells a zany story from Whit’s college years, but is really a reflection on privilege. Her comic, Passing deals with issues of race and identity head-on. Whit’s drawing style and story telling are accessible, insightful and make you want to read everything she’s written!
