Delaine Derry Green started writing and illustrating autobiographical comics under the name ‘My Small Diary’ in 1993. ‘Not My Small Diary’, a compilation of small press artists’ auto-bio comics, edited by Delaine, was first released in 1996 as an offshoot of her own comic. Still going strong, these comic-zines have attracted a diverse, talented contributor base. Widely praised for excellent layout and design, the Small Diary books have been well received by reviewers and readers the world over. NMSD and MSD have appeared on the Favorite Zine list of the Zine Guide publication, were inducted into the Zine Hall of Fame in 2007, and have made the best-seller list at Atomic Books. Small Diary publications have appeared in the following museum shows: Dark Matter at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 2004; Art of Zines at the San Jose Museum of Art, 2004; Dear Diary: The Autobiographical Comic Book at the Athens Institute of Contemporary Art, 2006; and Art of Zines at the Anno Domini Gallery, San Jose, 2009. These zines have also ridden aboard the Mobilivre-Bookmobile, a traveling library of independent publications that toured across North America. They appear in several library collections including ones in Denver, Seattle, NYC, Chicago, Birmingham, and Utah among others. When not drawing and editing comics, Delaine works as a graphic designer and a mixed media artist showing in a Birmingham gallery.
