"Lines" will be exhibited in the show "Women in Comics: Looking Forward and Back" at the Society of Illustrators in New York City, March 11 through June 13, 2020

"In this brand new strip, Flowers explains how her artistic process is heavily influenced by the memory of her grandmother, Victoria. It subtly depicts scenes from Victoria's life, each frame laden with emotion and cultural memory" (D&Q).

Women's Review of Books

Inspired by the global #MeToo Movement, Drawing Power: Women’s Stories of Sexual Violence, Harassment, and Survival is a collection of original, nonfiction comics drawn by more than 60 female cartoonists from around the world. Featuring such noted creators as Emil Ferris, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, MariNaomi, Liana Finck, and Ebony Flowers the anthology’s contributors comprise a diverse group of many ages, sexual orientations, and races—and their personal stories convey the wide spectrum of sexual harassment and abuse that is still all too commonplace. With a percentage of profits going to RAINN, Drawing Power is an anthology that stokes the fires of progressive social upheaval, in the fight for a better, safer world.
 

Virgin Hair

Scoundrel Time, January 7, 2020

In 1995 when I was 11
I got my first perm
To better fit in
With my sorta neighborhood friends

I remember ammonia smells
And R&B music
And clumps of black hair
All over salon chairs

And then there was gossip
Amongst women and girls
Either doing hair or gettin' it done
Their chatter, laughter, and fun

Texturizers!
Relaxers!
Perms!
Jheri Curls!
