    When the website Women Who Draw launched last December, it crashed within several hours. Curious visitors had inundated the first online directory dedicated to female illustrators. After the site was back up and running, it received more than 6 million page views in its first three days—and over 1,200 submissions from illustrators hoping to be added to the database. The excitement confirmed founders Julia Rothman and Wendy MacNaughton’s instinct: It was high time that women illustrators received more exposure—and, most importantly, more jobs.

    By art world standards, I’ve had a fairly typical education; I attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Goldsmiths College in London. In my eclectic career, I’ve curated at emerging project spaces, but also overseen the installation of Damien Hirst sculptures.
