Lisa Deng

Lisa Deng is a comic and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Previously, on the east coast, she studied the history of art and stop-motion animation at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She likes to be disgusted, which is why she enjoys celebrity gossip, turn of the century rom-coms and Bioré Deep Cleaning Pore Strips.

When asked what her first publication means to her, Lisa responded:

I am both trilled and horrified to share with readers my first published piece of fiction. While I don’t know if the voice in the story is one I will recognize next year or in five minutes, it is a voice that I liked spending time with. Being published means I am less scared to let go of a story. It means I am willing to pluck my perfect ideas from their pristine haven in my imagination and subject them to the poverty of language and earth decay. Also, it means I am ready to admit to people that I am relatable.
