Liz and Jimmy Circle 250.png

Liz and Jimmy Reed are the husband-and-wife team behind Cuddles and Rage, a world full of disturbingly cute stories with heart. What began as a webcomic featuring doodles and dioramas of anthropomorphic food has grown to include books, animation, and product design.

Their work has been featured by Nerdist, The Washington Post, NPR, HelloGiggles, and SparkLife. Their first animated short debuted at the NYC Food Film Festival in 2016. In 2017, their second short took home the Best Super-Short award. Their first picture book, Sweet Competition, was released by HarperCollins in 2016. Their follow-up, Sweet Success, debuts on July 3rd, 2018.

They live and work in the DC area and can be coaxed to visit other cities with cake and ice cream. Reach out to cuddlesandrage@gmail.com to get in touch.
