After graduating from the School of Visual Arts in 2017, Ellen Chao wandered the desert of the soul to find herself. We're still not sure if that's been accomplished, but along the way she found the desire to channel her feelings into comics about cat people. Inspirations include Peanuts, The Simpsons, and Jillian Tamaki's SuperMutant Magic Academy. Outside of art, Ellen enjoys crochet and bouldering. You can find her stickers & handmade zines on her Etsy store.
