Glynnis Fawkes is a cartoonist and archaeological illustrator. Her comics for MuthaMagazine were nominated for an Ignatz Award at the Small Press Expo in 2016. Recently her work has appeared on The New and in the magazine. Her latest book, Reign of Crumbs, is available from Kilgore Books. Her Greek Diary was shortlisted for the Slate Cartoonist Studio Prize for Best Online Comic and won a silver medal at the Society of Illustrators MoCCA Arts Festival in 2017. In April 2016, her book Alle Ego also won the MoCCA Arts Festival Award for Excellence. She has illustrated several academic books (Three Stones Make a Wall, Kinyras: the Divine Lyre, The Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends, and Myths) and worked extensively as illustrator on archaeological projects in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Lebanon, and Israel. A Fulbright Fellowship to Cyprus allowed her to publish Archaeology Lives in Cyprus (Hellenic Bank, Nicosia 2001), a book of paintings, and Cartoons of Cyprus (Moufflon Publications, Nicosia, 2001). She was named among the Best American Comics Notables in 2012 and 2013 and won a Sequential Artists Workshop grant in 2013. She lives in Burlington with her music archaeologist/classics professor husband and two children.


Glynnis’s comics can be found in the Secret Acres Emporium here.


Fawkes captures the beauty of the Grecian landscape: the bustle of busy ports, quiet villages baking under the summer sun, and days filled with sightseeing, swimming in the ocean, and lazy pleasure-seeking—interspersed with inevitable bouts of travel fatigue and ordinary family strife. The result is a work that’s more vivid, immersive, and entertaining than any vacation slide show could ever be. .

– The Comics Journal

Fawkes has written about her children before, but much of her work tends to focus on either mythology or archaeology. Not in this book, as Fawkes expertly and honestly captures the ways in which children (and pre-teens in particular) are both terrible and wonderful.

– High-Low

Fawkes is an award-winning cartoonist who hasn’t really gotten that big PR breakout yet. Excellent pieces like this should change that. I think any woman who has a mother or is a mother will relate to the intense body scrutiny that little girls have for their moms — at least I do!

– Comics Beat

The control of her other work, like Alles Ego, is replaced with a simplicity and an immediacy that makes these comics feel lived in. It’s hard to say which of Fawkes’s styles I prefer more.
