Show Notes

Creativity through the lens of a comix maker and graphic novelist,

"Creativity is so much more than art. Being able to express that constant bubbling spirit within you."

Jennifer Hayden is a comix maker and graphic novelist based in New Jersey. She is
the creator of The Story of My Tits, a graphic memoir about her life and her experience
with breast cancer. Nominated for an Eisner Award and named one of the best graphic
novels of 2015 by GQ, Library Journal, and NPR, The Story of My Tits has been
translated into three languages.
Hayden’s first collection Underwire was excerpted in The Best American Comics 2013.
Her work has appeared in anthologies, online, and in several academic works. Her
comics have been exhibited in shows from Rome to Bologna and Madrid. She is a
frequent speaker to literary, comics, medical, and student audiences, as well as breast
cancer groups.
Currently Hayden is finishing her first work in color, a graphic anti-cookbook called
Where There’s Smoke There’s Dinner. She plans to use the proceeds to hire a
personal chef.
