Bio

 

Tara Abbamondi (formally an O’Connor) is a cartoonist/illustrator/comics-making lady. She graduated from Marywood University with a BA in Art Education with a concentration in Illustration. After many years of drawing comics for fun, she decided that she wanted to try her hand at self-publishing and in 2010 she put out her first printed mini-comic entitled Puddles. Currently she is working on multiple anthology pieces and two full-length comics. She lives with her husband in the middle of the woods.

In 2008 I started some sort of journal comic entitled GingerCurls, there I’ve recorded dreams, daily things, and drawings. Many of those I have not attached to this site for personal reasons. If you would like to read through, you are more than welcome by clicking here.

*** Hilarious Disclaimer: My hair color is not natural. However, it’s been red for so long, MOST people only know me as a redhead and quite honestly, I’ll never NOT be a redhead. I’ve broken many hearts because of this.

 The lovely art above was done by comic-artist extraordinaire Justin Peterson. Click the picture to go check out more of his work!
