ABOUT ME


Hi, I’m Lis! I’m a Chinese-Canadian creator from Toronto, Canada. I create illustrations with undulating and blended colours that are inspired by moments of tenderness and soft dreams. I also make narrative comics with fable-like themes as well as light, humorous vignettes.

I am also a third of Wavering Line Collective, and we produce a bi-annually printed zine that collects short comics and illustrations. We have also been nominated for a Doug Wright Pigskin Peters Award for our experimental comics! Check out our work here.
