Sarah Winifred Searle has been steadily building a reputation for herself as a cartoonist over the last few years thanks to her talent for character-driven stories with rich emotion and gently evocative artwork. She’s grown with each new project, whether it’s longer stories like Rosy Press’ Ruined (written by Sarah Vaughn) or short comics like the recent “Fatness, Femininity And The Media We Deserve” for The Nib, and Searle is applying her skills to a new graphic novel coming from Lerner Publishing’s Graphic Universe in fall 2019: Thimble.
