Toronto based Jennifer Liu is an award-winning Chinese Canadian-American freelance illustrator. Occasionally she likes to print things in risograph and make comics. Her inspiration comes from the narratives and imagery she stumbles across while watching all different kinds of animation.
Toronto artist Jenn Liv‘s work is influenced by her pop culture inheritance. Whereas some artists are keen to establish their credentials through lists of canonical and well-respected influences, Liv goes the other way: anime, Manga and video game works have helped to form her own practices.
“A lot of my artistic influences come from the narratives and imagery I stumble across while watching all different kinds of animation. My tastes have evolved over time but I constantly go back and re-watch the heck out of old favorites, trying to study all the factors of what makes them so great. It’s always been a dream of mine to pitch a cartoon someday so I try to create comics whenever I can as a way of taking what I’ve learned and putting it into practice.”
