I made a website, um finally


1. The 2012 calendar is on sale
2. I am so proud to have a website where I can share some of my life's highlights, like praise from my heroes Alison Bechdel and Shary Boyle. 
Come on over to elishalim.com!
3. Lord it's true, I'm twittering too. Want a description of the new art I still make every day? I may tweet it.

Los Sentidos


Coco Riot and I made a film for the Brooklyn Armory Arts festival in March. The challenge was to finish an illustration in the course of one poem. It turned into giant golden faces over Coco's poem "Los Sentidos." My favourite lines:
"Me han dicho que no eres persona de una sola persona. 

Me dices.
Te digo. 
Tengo la suerte de tener tantas personas a las que querer a mi lado."
Stills collage by Coco.

365 days of new art

I'm stopping at 365. 
Thank you, thank you for your company this year. 
I watched little dots increase all over the blog hit map with happiness and comfort.


 Please come hang out with me at www.etsy.com/shop/elishalim, where I'm going to be shamelessly selling calendars, posters, zines, valentines cards, birthday cards and queer propaganda forever!

Draft 2. May I say, Sara Hennessey has been one of my best contract employers. Clear instructions and prompt payment. Yay for employers like that.

kings of XB

I painted this in the yard when I lived at Liebigstrasse34, my beloved 25-feminists house in Berlin. At the time I remember being disappointed with the painting, but now I quite enjoy it

greatest compliment



here is a friend I'll always love

Saturday, October 30, 2010


sometimes travelling makes me sad. Moving, moving, always an urge to find somewhere new and shake off inertia and forget who I was. But the price is so high, because you always leave something behind and your life starts to just become distant nostalgic memories. Did those places ever really exist? And those people, will I ever see them again, just the way they were? If you understand, this is dedicated to you. and Coco.

sara hennessy


I went to a comedy show alone. It might be one of the nicest thing I've ever done to myself. I felt happy, entertained, relaxed and proud of my own company. Anyhoo, the all-women lineup was full of pretty funny people, and this comic made me laugh the most. Her name is Sara Hennessy.
