About Suzy Becker
Suzy Becker has been a lot of things— from synthetic mohair factory worker to charter school cofounder— however she considers herself first and foremost a cartoonist. Her work first gained recognition on her self-published Widget Factory cards, and then sat on the NY Times bestseller list for seven months in ALL I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM MY CAT. Suzy has since written and illustrated ten other titles for all ages. She is a faculty advisor in Applied Cartooning for the Center for Cartoon Studies, and a leading practitioner in the emerging field of Graphic Medicine. Her cartoons debuted in the New Yorker in May (2020).
She lives with her family and three well meaning-dogs in central Massachusetts.
