Laura Howell likes making comics that make people laugh. In 2006 she became the first woman to draw for the Beano, and is currently the artist in charge of everyone’s favourite pigtailed powerhouse Minnie the Minx.

She has drawn and written for many publications including Viz, the Dandy and the DFC, as well as comic adaptations of Angry Birds and Cartoon Network’s Regular Show. In 2021, her artwork was displayed in the “Beano: The Art of Breaking the Rules” exhibition in Somerset House, London, and can currently be seen in the V&A Museum in Dundee.
