“Funny Women” Art Show


Near the bottom of every Funny Women piece is the note, “Rumpus original art by Annie Daly.” We believe in combining hilarious content with a strong aesthetic while promoting artists with ovaries. For a year, Annie’s reliably created beautiful illustrations to make women’s writing and jokes prettier.

For those of you in the Bay Area or with friends/family/ex-lovers in the Bay Area, Annie is showing her Rumpus-inspired art at the Glama-Rama Salon & Gallery on 6399 Telegraph Ave in Oakland until Sept. 28.

Illustrations for your Memoir! pairs art from the site alongside the pieces they illustrate. As a book-lover, Annie hopes Illustrations for your Memoir! will feel like walking into a storybook of other peoples’ lives.

And because I enjoy bios: Annie Daly is an Oakland-based artist and illustrator with a passion for environmental and social justice-themed art. Her art has been featured in local cafés, galleries like 111 Minna, and everyone’s heart.
