Donna Lewis began her cartooning career with the web comic Crazed Angels. In an interview with Washington City Paper’s Mike Rhode, Lewis explained, “I created a community of hardworking angels whose efforts to help humans were hindered by the fact that humans resist help.” She put her Angels on hold to focus on Reply All and Reply All Lite, her two comics about the downsides of being enlightened and aware. A sometimes-published writer, Lewis turned to stripping (the act of creating pictures and words) after a brief stint in local stand-up where she realized the late-night schedule conflicted with her body’s internal clock. Lewis took her material from stand-up routines and added basic stick figures. The result was cute and fun and a great escape from reality, so she kept matching material to doodles. She spent the next few years learning how to draw better and can now draw hands that look like they could actually bend. Lewis comes from “an annoyingly funny family” that provides material faster than she can “translate it into a written product.” Now, she says, “The years of listening to their absurd notions about the world are finally providing value to my life.” Lewis assures us that no family members were harmed in the creation of this strip, and some names were left unchanged in order to incriminate those deserving of such. Donna spends her days helping the federal government operate in Washington, D.C. She is pleased to report that she gets to debate constitutional issues frequently and is proud to say that she still loves government and the Constitution. Donna also owns BellaBooDC, a design studio specializing in character art, design art and patterns for licensing and publishing.
