About Girls Drawin Girls:
     Girls Drawin Girls ( ) was founded in 2006 by Simpsons veteran Melody Severns and storyboard artist Anne Walker, who started Girls Drawin Girls as a way to showcase female artists working in the male-heavy animation industry.  They felt it was time for these talented women to demonstrate their creative abilities and their own personal vision of sex appeal by treading upon the male domineered field of pin up art.  

    Since its conception, the group has published two volumes of pin-up art and grown to over 30 active members from around the world, whose work has been showcased in various entertainment industries, from production design, film and television animation, to graphic design.
