Noah Grigni is a freelance illustrator and comic artist from Atlanta, currently living in Boston. They make art about mental health, trans history, and body positivity, among other things. Through art and writing, they hope to make space for more stories centering diverse trans and queer characters with depth, personality, and agency. Their art is a reminder to heal, a call to action, and an unapologetic celebration of queer love.
Noah graduated from Lesley University in 2018 with a BFA in illustration and a minor in creative writing. Their art has been published in It Feels Good To Be Yourself by Theresa Thorn, We're Still Here: An All-Trans Comics Anthology by Tara Avery and Jeanne Thornton, The Transgender Heroes Coloring Book by Avery and Cameron, The Gender Identity Workbook For Kids by Kelly Storck, and The Worry Workbook For Kids by Muniya Khanna. They have also self-published several zines, available on Etsy. Their current projects include illustrating The Every Body Book by Rachel Simon, coming 2020 from Jessica Kingsley Publishers; illustrating The Ship We Built by Lexie Bean, coming 2020 from Penguin Random House; and both writing and illustrating their first graphic novel, Cloudland, coming 2021 from First Second.
