    Brigitte Warner

    Hi! I’m a former math and technology teacher in Baltimore City and now work in web development full time. I love illustration, cartooning, good design, printmaking at Baltimore Print Studios, and Ruby on Rails! Girl Develop It, Rails Girls, and Betamore have all helped me substantially as I learned the ropes of a new trade. Sequential art and illustration are two of my passions and I considered Edward Gorey, Ralph Steadman, Quentin Blake, and Arnold Roth to be some of my greatest influences. I won the President’s Commendation for Achievement in the Arts as the Cartoons, Etc. editor for the Johns Hopkins News-Letter for my illustration and cartooning portfolio.
