About Girls Drawin Girls:
Girls Drawin Girls was founded in 2006 by Simpsons veteran Melody Severns and storyboard artist Anne Walker as a way to showcase women artists working in the male-dominated industry of animation. Together, they felt it was time for these talented women to demonstrate their creative abilities and artistic interpretations of female sexuality by re-defining the art of the pin-up.

Since its conception, the group has published three volumes of pin-up art and grown to over 90 active members who work professionally in various entertainment industries.

The group provides collaborative projects for its artists (such as book collections, group art shows, and opportunities to participate in charity art events such as the Pasadena Chalk Festival), in addition to promoting each member's individual artistic endeavors through cross-promotion and marketing prints, original artwork and other art-related merchandise.

About Gallery 839:
Gallery 839 is overseen by The Animation Guild (TAG 839). Located in the Union’s office headquarters building, Gallery 839 focuses on the work of artists in the animation industry, highlighting their fine art backgrounds apart from their day-to-day jobs in animation.

Gallery 839 hosts monthly shows of TAG members’ personal art, with a gala opening reception the first or second Friday of each month. The main goal for these shows is to help give TAG members a venue to show their personal artistry. The talent of the Animation Guild’s membership runs deep and wide, and the purpose of Gallery 839 is to share that talent with both the membership and the rest of the community.
