Here’s what I send when someone needs a bio for something:
Olivia Li is a multidisciplinary, no-discipline artist with way too much on her plate. She edits and designs anthologies, draws a comic about a cute gorgon family, and writes stories about angry women. One day she’ll either eat the world or collapse into herself as a black hole. There is no in-between.
I attended the School of Visual Arts from 2009-2014, studying computer animation. After some time out of school, I went back for a year to finish my degree, and graduated from the Visual & Critical Studies department in spring of 2018. I was an administrative member of the Boston Comics Roundtable from 2015-2016 and co-founded the comics collective Robot Camp in the summer of 2016. Currently, I’m based in New York City, freelancing in corporate video and communications, motion graphics, design, and illustration.
