Lauren Weinstein (born April 16, 1975) is an American comic book artist and illustrator. Her first comics appeared as syndicated strips in the Seattle Stranger and gURL.com, a website aimed at teenage girls.
Weinstein was one of a number of artists who graduated from Washington University in St. Louis and moved to New York in the late '90s, among them Patrick Smith of Vector Park and Dan Nadel of The Ganzfeld.
Her first solo comic, the Xeric award-winning Inside Vineyland, was published in 2003. Her collection Girl Stories, which originated as a series of short webcomics, was published by Henry Holt in 2006. Her work has appeared in The Best American Comics, An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Kramer's Ergot, and The Graphic Cannon. In 2015 her 5-part webcomic, Carriers, about dealing with the discovery that she and her husband are carriers of the gene that causes cystic fibrosis, won a gold medal from The Society of Illustrators.
Weinstein is also the lead singer of the metaphysical rock band/arts collective Flaming Fire, and has released three albums: Get Old and Die with Flaming Fire in 2001, Songs from the Shining Temple in 2003, and When the High Bell Rings in 2007.
