The Big Book of Bisexual Trials and Errors

Elizabeth Beier chronicles her true-life romantic tales as she breaks up with a long-term boyfriend and starts to date women. Beier tackles the complexities of sexuality and self image with a conversational and immediate art style, telling stories anyone who's ever struggled with dating can relate to. Northwest Press, October 2017

As Elizabeth grows from young girl to confident queer, the literal walls of her work come crumbling down: the lines and marks get bolder and more dynamic, and the traditional comic book grids and portrait-based storytelling give way to the abstract, the strange, and the divine.
— 99% Invisible producer Avery Trufelman, from the foreword

I specialize in true stories about identity and community. 



Sometimes just one image can tell a story. I create open source #resistance art, landscapes, and portraits. 

Live scribing


At conferences, meetings, classes, I draw the entire scene and capture the conversation.
