Coffee Spoons began as an NYC-area collective of young cartoonists. Sometimes we draw together. Sometimes we drink coffee. We publish an anthology series of the same name, collecting our own short comics on specific themes. Cartoonist Tom Hart once said we would take over the world. We’re not sure if that’s true but it would be pretty cool if we do.
Sally Cantirino grew up in New Jersey, where she dropped out of college to work at a cartooning school (Sequential Artists Workshop) in Gainesville, FL. She drinks too much coffee and wears too much black. Sometimes Sally draws comics; mostly she draws things on the back of diner place mats.
Kate Drwecka (School of Visual Arts ‘13) was born in Canada and currently studies cartooning. At an early age, her only aspiration in life was to grow up and become Freddie Mercury. Upon realizing that this simply was not possible, she settled for her other greatest passion: comics.
Stephanie Mannheim (Barnard – Columbia ‘14) grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan where, as a cranky teenager, she began publishing her first mini-comics. She now lives in New York City. Steph draws the satirical mini-comic series “Nate the Nonconformist” and “Roxie”. She also co-edited the one-shot newspaper “Seriously Comics” with Tom Hart.
Daryl Seitchik (Barnard – Columbia ‘12) is a little witch from New Jersey. She recently graduated from Barnard College with an art history and visual arts degree and will spend the rest of her life conjuring up comics, most likely in her mother’s basement.
Born in Tel Aviv Israel, Li-Or Zaltzman (School of Visual Arts ‘13) has spent all of her youth drawing on whatever she could get her hands on (be it paper, wall, or light fixtures) and making up stories. She makes comics and prints all day and walks around the city with semi-permanent ink stains on her hands.
