Today I’m speaking with Liana Kangas, a freelance comic artist and illustrator. We talk about her new comic, BlackOUT, her graphic design equipment and process, and how she balances her art career and personal life. Liana is a pro at diving headfirst into new creative communities, as she’s lived in many cities over the past few years!
