The Women Who Draw database is a wonderful resource, allowing you to browse the portfolios of female illustrators, and sort them by ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. The project aims to increase the visibility of illustrators of colour, LGBTQ, or any other underrepresented groups.
It can be used to compare the styles of illustrators in Asia to those in Europe, or to track down the work of female Native American illustrators.
It is an open directory, so illustrators can add their own names and work to the database. Each entry links directly through to the illustrator’s own website or store.
