Hi, I’m Lis!

I’m a Chinese-Canadian creator from Toronto, Canada. I create soft, evocative illustrations and work with mostly traditional media like pencil crayons and watercolour. I illustrated the picture book When Molly Drew Dogs, written by Deborah Kerbel and published by Owlkids Books. 

I am also a member of Wavering Line Collective, a trio of illustrators who work on producing a bi-annual zine of comics and illustrations. Check out our work here.

I'm currently open for any illustration and design work. You can email me at lis@lisshu.com :)
