She is best known as the author and illustrator (or, as Halliday herself terms it, "the chief primatologist") of the long-running zine The East Village Inky. The zine got its name from Halliday's living in New York City's East Village, and "Inky" being the nickname of her then-infant daughter.
She is Bust magazine's Mother Superior columnist, in which she often discusses motherhood, her children and social issues.
She is currently helming The Zinester's Guide to NYC, a low-budget, highly participatory guidebook for the creatively inclined, to be published in November, 2010.
Her first graphic novel, Peanut, is to be published in the summer of 2011.
