WEBBER Georgia

She is cartoon editor for carte blanche, Guest Services Co-ordinator for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, and Distribution and Marketing Director at Paper Pusher and Papirmass.

She created the cartoon memoir Dumb which chronicles her severe vocal injury and her ongoing recovery.

“In the pages of Dumb, a deeply personal graphic memoir, Georgia Webber renders the everyday challenges that come with voicelessness. Earning a living becomes a near impossible task. Conversing with friends becomes an exhausting hurdle. Her raw cartooning style captures her frustration, and the anxiety that advances from two fronts: the ways she is perceived by others and the new doubt-ridden ways she perceives herself. But throughout her silent journey, she learns how deeply her voice and identity are Intertwined and discovers new ways of expressing herself.”                    Dumb: Living Without A Voice: Back cover
