"I'm Lis, an illustrator from Toronto, Canada. The siblings in this story show up in my other comic and illustration work, and I like using them to explore stuff like relationships and growth. The format is inspired by John Martz's Gold Star, and I like how it lets me combine my detailed pencil crayon illustrations with looser cartooning. For me this is a rare project that wasn't rushed just in time for a comics show haha! I'm super grateful for this opportunity to share my work with more people :)"
This zine is a part of three mini-comics produced by the residents of first installment of Pumpkin's Remote Residency, which ran between April and June 2020. Each artist worked independently to produce their own book.
Net revenue is split 50% between the Chi-Nations Youth Council and a fund to run Pumpkin's Residency again in the winter.
