About Girls Drawin’ Girls: Girls Drawin Girls (GDG) was founded in 2006 by Simpsons veteran Melody Severns, who started Girls Drawin’ Girls as a way to showcase female artists working in the male-heavy animation industry. She felt it was time for these talented women to demonstrate their creative abilities and their own personal vision of sex appeal by re-interpreting the field of pin-up art.
Since it’s conception, the group has published two volumes of pin-up art and has grown to over 200 active members worldwide, whose work has been showcased in various entertainment industries, from production design, film and television animation, to graphic design.
