Elizabeth Beier Illustrates all your valuable most useful (and worst) Nights at The Lexington – HER

Elizabeth Beier is a female just who knows your own lez life. She is just lived it herself, she is pulled it out as well. Over the past few years she is spent countless nights at infamous ingesting place, The Lex. she is written down pretty much every experience we have had here, perfectly. From the one that went too much into downright depressing, her cartoons not just feel near to house but fairly they a lot sum-up every little thing The Lex provides stood for more than these past few decades. She’ll be showing her comical pieces at goal Comics in May, however in the meantime, we asked the girl slightly about her project and where you are able to learn a lot more.

Q. What made you intend to put pencil to paper for your Lex cartoons?


The need to wow ladies, needless to say. Well, severely — we began drawing women at the Lexington Club as a way to present me, in a fashion that had been more original than providing them a drink or eagerly singing along toward jukebox’s Pat Benatar. I started collecting the illustrations and considering it a lot more as a “project” when I heard the bar ended up being shutting.

Q. What have been the your own personal finest recollections from Lex?


On Halloween of 2014 I held court within my favored place on bar and received attractive people in outfit, which subsequently bought me personally beverages. A cute girl (or perhaps — individual who isn’t really a cis man) handed me personally a card that said “you’re drilling awesome. Keep that shit upwards” and walked away. I ran into the woman once again back at my method to catch the BART and experienced the very first kiss since my personal Major split that thought fun and sexy. So — that has been a great evening.
