"There is nothing more beautiful in our material world than the book.”- Patti Smith
My name is Sarah Romano Diehl. I am an illustrator and comics artist in Seattle, WA. I am currently working on Issue three of my Crust comic series. Issues one & two were published in 2017 and 2018. I also paint murals and teach after school comics classes.
In 2019 Bad Publisher Books published I Like Totally Know What You Did Last Summer- a book written by Brandon Lehmann and cartooned by me.
I've had work in the Seattle Weekly, several comics anthologies such as Board 2 Death published by Paper Press Punch (2018), Northwest Cartoonists Cookbook published by Fantagraphics Bookstore (2017), RESIST! published by Desert Island Comics (2017), issue six of the quarterly Hey Lady published by Regina Schilling (2016), Hey Lady issue nine (2018)and Bloody Pussy- a feminist comics paper put together by Short Run Small Press Fest organizers which was inducted into The Library of Congress, along with some of my other comics.
I was nominated for an I Heart Comic Art award in 2015.
I show work in group shows and solo art shows sometimes, and table at comix events as often as I can.
Most of my time is spent thinking about art, music and stories. I enjoy trips to the beach, camping and hiking with my family and friends.
