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.

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