Jules Scheele's headshot

I’m a freelance illustrator, comics artist and graphic facilitator based in Glasgow, who specialises in graphic storytelling and illustrations that help translate and bring a human touch to difficult concepts. My art focuses strongly on mental health, queerness, activism and community. I have 10+ years of experience in self-publishing and organising in the UK DIY zine and comics scene, and over the last few years I have illustrated a few books in the Graphic History series from ICON Books, most notably Queer: A Graphic History and Gender: A Graphic Guide, written by Dr. Meg-John Barker. Recently, I have delivered workshops on zines and autobio comics for the Scottish Book Trust and Glasgow Zine Fest, and am keen to do more of the same, as well as panels and talks.
