Janice Liu smiles at the camera


Janice Liu is a children's comic artist. Her graphic novel with Naomi Cui, Chicken Soup & Goji Berries 中药鸡汤, was a 2020 Excellence in Graphic Literature Award finalist, and a Gene Day Award nominee.

Janice's digital illustrations simulate the look of real ink and watercolour, and combine commercial cartooning with the look of Chinese ink painting.

In 2021, Janice was a participating artist in Comics In Transit, partnering with Cloudscape Comics and the City of Vancouver. Her comic examining anti-Asian racism during Covid-19 was displayed in bus shelters across Metro Vancouver.

Janice also programs and runs kids’ art classes at her art school, Young Artists’ Place.
