Donna Letterese of "Draw D.V.L. Productions" is an L.A. based artist. Originally from New York, she earned her B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College and also studied cartooning while abroad at Goldsmith's College, University of London. Her time in London was what made her fall in love with the world of underground comics and she's loved the medium ever since. Since living in L.A., she has worked with kids, as an assistant editor at a Manga Publishing Company, and now does freelance writing for such publications as In Hollywood Magazine. She has exhibited her work at various galleries/collectives, including Cannibal Flower, Daydream Republic, OCCCA, Gallery 212, 2nd City Council Art and Performance Space, and Enid and Edgar Vintage. Donna also sells her work, along with handmade greeting cards and Sculpey toys and jewelry, at art fairs and Comic Conventions. She would be lost without pens, ink, and the watercolor and Tombo pens needed to sometimes splash color into a piece. To find out more, please visit www.drawdvl.com.
