Work: My illustrations and drawings tend to involve animals and other creatures getting up to all sorts of things, like putting on plays, or dressing up, or generally being fabulous. “Sloth and Manatee” are two friends who came into being starting in 2020 during the pandemic lockdown, and who have continued to travel around and wonder about the world. “Enter, Pursued by a Skunk” is a series of drawings I made about animals putting on plays up at the Bruns Amphitheater, home of Cal Shakes, when all the humans went home (benefits Cal Shakes!). I send comics and other goodies each week to my email list at tinyletter.com/betsystreeter.
About: I’m a longtime cartoonist and illustrator and an East Bay native, with past lives in film, design, video games, and nonprofit theater. I’m on the board at California Shakespeare Theater. One of my cartoons travels around with the Smithsonian Astrophysics Observatory’s exhibit on black holes, and another one, if you look really closely, is on the wall of Paul Giamatti’s character’s office in the movie, “San Andreas.”
