Hello! My name is Courtney Sieh, I live in the Minneapolis area, and I live to draw. I am kept company at all hours at my drafting table by my two cats, Voodoo and Babydoll.
My first graphic novel was released April 2022 by Gallery 13 of Simon and Schuster. Ten Days in a Mad-House was co-created with writer Brad Ricca, adapted from the journalism of Nellie Bly. It has been nominated for a 2023 Will Eisner Award for Best Adaptation from Another Medium, recognized by the New York Public Library as one of the 2022 Best Graphic Novels for Adults, and nominated by the YSLSA to be a Great Graphic Novel of 2022. It was also reviewed favorably by Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and the Plain Dealer.
Included in my client list are Target, Sam’s Club, MONO branding agency, The Design Group, Sketchy Learning, and Creative Memories. I began at American Greetings. My assignments have ranged from surface design to educational illustrations to lifestyle photoshoot direction.
As an avid swing dancer I have created designs and merchandise for many dance scenes and workshops. These include All Balboa Weekend, Get Hep Swing, SparX, Great Lakes Balboa Escape, Columbus Lindy & Blues Exchange, Rhythm Shuffle, and Faultline Swing.
I graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA in Illustration and an emphasis in Interior Architecture.
