Diane Noomin is the artist that created the character Didi Glitz. The comic revolves around Didi Glitz who is a woman in her mid-thirties, Jewish, and gets into different situations. A few of the stories that I read had to do with her Jewish surroundings, her friends, sex, and her family. The style, which she draws in, is fairly sketchy; she takes liberties with the bodies positioning and anatomical correctness. One part of her drawing that I found most interesting is her obsession with patterns, she uses patterns in almost every frame. She usually uses them in the outrageous clothing that the characters wear and also with the backgrounds.
Diane Noomin went to Brooklyn College and Pratt University. Besides being involved in her own comic stories she was a co-creator of the Twisted Sisters anthologies. These books are a compilation of different women cartoonists. She has been published in multiple books, and comic collections. She also was asked to help produce a musical based on her own Didi comics.
