Jen Bartel is an illustrator and comic artist who specializes in drawing strong ladies.  Her candy colored work is heavily influenced by media from the 90’s and early 2000’s that she consumed during her childhood, and her biggest creative goal is to breathe life into characters that inspire and empower girls from all backgrounds. She is best known for her ongoing cover work on IDW’s Jem and the Holograms.
