Annie Mok reads recent comics from Frank Santoro’s online magazine Comics Workbook and elsewhere that touch on themes of childhood trauma, resilience, sexuality, and trans identity. She will sell Risograph-printed comics and digital prints, such as the Jim Henson bio comic Stitching Together, and the American Illustration 2012 ‘Archive’ selection Annie Mok Draws James Joyce. She lived in Chicago from 2009-2011. A Q&A and signing follow the reading. Annie & Sam Sharpe collaborated on “Roosterlegs” for the 2012 2DCloud anthology, Little Heart.
“Annie Mok is bursting with ideas… ‘Roosterlegs’ is by far the best-looking strip in [Little Heart] thanks to the bold, confident lines, clever character design, and interesting use of spot color.”
