Ellen Forney

Peter Bagge, Jim Woodring, Pulitzer winner David Horsey: all justly acclaimed. But Ellen Forney is the only one who also does custom wedding invitations. (Though wouldn't you love to see a Peter Bagge invitation?) Forney's curvy, brushy line and text-rich formats adapt to everything from sex—with playful, kink-centered eroticism a favorite topic—to satire; her I Was 7 in '75 series does both, expertly adoring and sending up the heady days of the Ford/Carter era.
