America's First Female Underground Cartoonist
Prints, Commissions and Original Works available for the first time in 40 years
Hurricane Nancy's work was originally published in the East Village Other (EVO), Gothic Blimp Works and other underground publications in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Hurricane Nancy is a founding member of the It Ain’t Me Babe Collective.
Nancy makes a large scale drawing using cartoonist's pen and ink techniques. This image is then photographed or scanned and prepared for printing. The printing is normally done in large cartoon format (5x7) on acid free white archival board. The image size can be set to other preferences within the constraints of the original size and proportions of the image.

Hurricane Nancy Hails from New York City and has been an artist all her life. It was in New York during the turbulent 1960's, days of civil unrest over the war in Vietnam and Civil Rights, that she changed the way women saw themselves in the male dominated world of cartoon art. She was recognized as their inspiration by several female cartoonists. Starting in the early 1970's she turned her attention entirely to the personal wellbeing of artists and became a trained counsellor, an occupation that brought great satisfaction and culminated in her return to the drawing board with the results that you see here. Because of her experiences her creative powers have strengthened, matured and flourished. In her own words; "I'm just getting started!"
Interest and appreciation of her art form has not waned over the years. For example, The East Village Other (EVO) has over 10 million Google searches to its credit even though it ceased publication in early 1972, over 35 years ago.
