In this paper, we study drawings of outer-planar graphs in various models. We show that O(n log n) area can be achieved for such drawings if edges are allowed to have bends or if vertices may be represented by boxes. The question of straight-line grid-drawings of outer-planar graphs in o(n²) area remains open.
