For as long as I can remember, I have been telling stories through words and images. I am a graduate of New York University: Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where I created my own major: a cross-cultural study of storytelling within film, literature, graphic novels, etc. In all my endeavors, I adapt this interdisciplinary approach, pursuing my diverse interests with in-depth research and imagination.
G. E. Gallas is a writer and illustrator best known for her graphic novel The Poet and the Flea about the poet-painter William Blake and for illustrating Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know About 50 Famous Phobias by Sara Latta (Zest Books).
After studying Japanese language and culture for many years, she spent a year abroad in Tokyo, Japan. She graduated from New York University: Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a major involving cross-cultural storytelling.
She was an intern at Zest Books, the publisher of Little Fish by Ramsey Beyer and Tomboy by Liz Prince.
She has written a number of short and full-length screenplays and attended the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival.
She has spoken upon invitation to The Blake Society (London), Yale University School of Drama, and Germanna College (Virginia); and was asked by the Inspired by Blake festival (in conjunction with Blackwell’s Bookshop and the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, University of Oxford) to write a guest article for their blog.
Her illustrations are also featured in Age of Saints: An Illustrated Guide to the Saints of Wales and Welsh in the Old West (A Raven Above Press), Magic Bullet (Washington, D.C.’s free comics newspaper), Do More Good. Better. (High Impact Press), and FMyLife’s Illustrated FML.
