Lilli Carré is a zine-making, comic-writing, film-creating machine! I absolutely love her artwork and her ability to write fascinating stories. In a very much male-dominated medium-graphic novels and illustration-Lilli Carré has become known for h stories like Nine Ways to Disappear, Tales of Woodsman Pete, and The Lagoon. Not to mention her stories have been featured in multiple anthologies and magazines and her artwork has graced the front of many books.
Recently she did some animation work for Watershed, a documentary examining the politics of water, especially out West. I'm super excited to see it, as I remember talking with a professor about this very issue when I was in Arizona at the Hoover Dam.
I'm also excited because she is working on an anthology of previously published stories, Heads Or Tails! If you haven't checked out some of Lilli Carré's other work, you should visit her website at www.lillicarre.com.
