Cartoonist and coach Jessica Abel is the founder of the Creative Focus Workshop, and author of Growing Gills: How to Find Creative Focus When You’re Drowning in Your Daily Life, the graphic novel La Perdida, and two textbooks about making comics, Drawing Words & Writing Pictures and Mastering Comics. Her book Out on the Wire is about how the best radio producers in the world use story to keep us listening. Jessica’s latest work of fiction is the Eisner-nominated Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars. She is chair of the illustration program at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
Jessica works with ambitious mid-career creative pros and businesses to stop grinding and start carving out deep focus time to finish—and launch—their major, game-changing projects.
