Julia Wald is a comics artist, fine artist, and illustrator who hates writing bios. Her work spans everything from large mixed media collages to googly eyed bugs and fish to tiny index card monsters and architectural drawings of all sorts of shapes and dimensions. Everything she does other than the cleanup process is executed by hand with a wide array of materials.

Her editorial illustration work has been published in The Baffler, Current Affairs, The New Republic and The Stranger among others, and her artwork has been shown in galleries across the US, including at Steve Gilbert Studio, Food Art Collection, CoCA Seattle, and the Seattle Emerging Arts Fair. She has won several grants for her comics including a 2019 Artist Trust Seattle Gap Grant and the 2022 Short Run Dash Grant.

Julia was a member-owner of Push/Pull and is a current member of the Society of Illustrators. Originally from Buffalo, NY, she holds degrees in art and chemistry from Buffalo State College. She lived in Seattle, WA for many years before relocating to her current city of Philadelphia, PA with her partner and two cats Winnie and Masha who assist in her artistic process.
