Grace Tran works on a foster care youth program at the Alternative Schools Network, co-organizes the Chicago Youth Community Film Festival, and self-publishes a zine called Day Trips. She was a founding organizer of the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo from 2012 – 2014.
Grace’s comics and stories are so good! Working primarily in autobiography, Grace’s zine Day Trips, showcases both her strong prose and simple-yet-effective comics story telling. Wicked smart and observant, Grace can shift between humor and drama in a sentence, and fully transport you to the scenes she is writing. Her spare drawing style is simple and welcoming, and deceptively descriptive.
