Ann Xu is an Ignatz-nominated cartoonist and illustrator working in Baltimore. She recently graduated with a BFA in illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her comics are filled with themes of childhood, home, and relationships. In her free time, she eats too many hot Cheetos and drinks too much milk tea.
Ann’s comics explore emotions surrounding family and home through subtle and engaging storytelling. Ann doesn’t shy away from tough scenarios, or weighty issues, and her spare but deliberate drawing style carries that weight flawlessly. Also, we could look at the plants she draws all day!
