Katie Quan dives into the world of comics and zines through the lens of an Asian American artist and educator. She'll introduce her biggest comic influences, her own experience in the medium, and how artists are breaking barriers left and right with their amazing work. Katie will then teach you how to start your own comics and create your very own zine.

Born and raised on Ramaytush Ohlone land (now known as San Francisco), Quan (she/her) is a third generation Chinese American. She is a comic artist, community advocate and educator. In 2020, Katie founded REALSOUL, a curriculum based organization that focuses on making Asian American stories accessible and intersectional. Her art furthermore explores themes like self identity, mental health and society through humor. Her work has been exhibited at SF Zinefest, Kearny Street Workshop, Asian American Women’s Artist Association and Chinese Historical Society of America. In her free time, you can find her drawing, bouldering or swatting gnats away from her indoor plants.
