More about Teresa Roberts Logan
A Silver-Reuben-nominated cartoonist, Teresa has been doodling designs, and writing and drawing comics since she was a kid in Memphis, and did her first “Snobby Models” comic book (basically a bunch of models with their noses in the air, wearing funky paisley clothes.) In her early 20s, she landed in stand-up comedy from her job as a Hallmark artist/writer (she was dared by the Shoebox staff to do an open mic night), and has appeared on HBO, A&E, The Comedy Channel, and lists the finest clubs in the US on her resumé, from Zanies Chicago to Comedy Works Denver to Catch A Rising Star Vegas, and Gotham Comedy Club NYC. She has worked with Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Carey, and Paula Poundstone, among others.
Taking the funny from page to stage and back again, her comics have been featured in The Center for Cartoon Studies’ nationally distributed “Cartoon Crier,” and her comics “Purty Funny” and “Noodlehead” chosen to be in Dirty Diamonds All-Girl Comics Anthologies most recent iterations. She also loves painting on big canvases, and her work is in collections worldwide, including the extensive art collections of Kyoko Ono Cox and Whoopi Goldberg.
Andrews McMeel Publishing (Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side) is her publisher, and she is on her third book with them, a coloring book full of Mandalas, following her first hit coloring book, “Posh Coloring Book: Paisleys for Fun & Relaxation,” and her book of cartoons, “The Older I Get, The Less I Care.”
She is a regular exhibitor at festivals and comiccons including: New York ComicCon, CreativeCon, AwesomeCon, TCAF, DINK, and SPX, where she sells her comics to pay for art supplies. Every two years, she takes a group of ne’er-do-wells onto the high seas, and conducts art journaling workshops, in between touring Mayan temples. She art directed a zombie movie in college, and loves zombies to this day.
She particularly loves travel, writing, drawing, being a mom, and wine, but not necessarily in that order.
