Join cartoonist, Carta Monir, in conversation with artist and Editorial Art Director, Hannah K. Lee, about community engagement, activism, and the experience of being a trans woman. This talk will delve into how family and vulnerability informs Carta’s work, which is often heavy in its emotional weight and searing in its honesty; and what drives her to create safe and open spaces for others, both online and in her own home. Q&A to follow. All attendees will receive a free copy of the Cool Work x Interesting People zine.

Hannah K. Lee is an artist and editorial art director based in Brooklyn, NY. She came from two churchgoing Korean immigrants who settled in the suburbs of Los Angeles. After a year-long stint studying English and Comparative Literature at Occidental College, the very place where a young Barack Obama likely smoked his first doobie, she moved to New York to pursue a BFA in Illustration at Parsons The New School for Design, where she graduated with no particular honors in 2009.

Carta Monir is a cartoonist and micropress publisher (Diskette Press) living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Her work is usually sad, but she herself is pretty happy.

This event is part of Cool Work x Interesting People, a monthly series about comics co-curated by Carta Monir and Leigh Hurwitz.
