Hi, I’m Birgit Keil and I’ve created “Just Bea” in hopes of capturing the imagination of a new audience concerned with nurturing and protecting what’s most important to us. This strip brings awareness to how we handle what life hands us in a fun way as Bea and those around her try to make a difference. I hope this strip inspires others to do the same.
As a kid I loved to draw. Later in my life I moved on to being an associate creative director at one of the largest advertising agencies in the country. But I never let go of my first love of drawing. I kept at it while designing and writing for major greeting card companies as well as doing pro-bono work for many charities including the Michigan Humane Society, AIDS Interfaith Network, and the National Statue of Liberty foundation.
Now I spend my days creating in my cozy home studio with my two Scottish Terriers Angus and Piper at my heels for support.
I hope you have as much fun with “Just Bea” as I do.
