Andrea named her Alice cartoon series – described as a “maturing single woman” – after fond recollections of a kindergarten classmate.
Alice was originally created in the 1980’s (1984-89) for the Philadelphia Architect, a monthly publication for the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The strip was also published in the Manhattan Comic News in 1990.
At the encouragement of friends, colleagues and especially, the late Tony Auth, Political Cartoonist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Andrea decided to re-create the Alice cartoon strip in 2013. Since that time, the strip has been exhibited in a variety of venues including Art of the State: Pennsylvania 2018 at The State Museum of Pennsylvania, Art in the Age of Injustice; Women’s Caucus for Art; ABOUT ALICE: A Cartoon By Andrea Beizer; Philadelphia International Airport 2016-2017.
When not in her studio working on Alice, she works as an architect and teaches at Moore College of Art and Design.
