Liz Prince was born in Boston, MA, in 1981, and grew up in Santa Fe, NM. In 2002, Liz returned to Boston to attend the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, where she received a BFA. Liz draws comics full time, and lives in Portland, Maine, with her cats Wolfman & Dracula, and her husband, Kyle.
Her first book, Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed? (Top Shelf Productions) received the Ignatz for Outstanding Debut in 2005. She has drawn comics for dozens of anthologies, self-published many mini comics and zines, and has contributed to several Cartoon Network comics properties such as Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Clarence. Garfield came over to her house for dinner once (he hated it).
Liz’s first graphic novel, Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir, was released in 2014 by Zest Books, to critical acclaim, and has since been published in French, Spanish, Korean, and was adapted as an audiobook. In 2017 Liz created the punk comic series Coady and the Creepies for KaBoom! With artist Amanda Kirk, and it’s probably her favorite comic that she’s made. Currently Liz draws daily journal comics that you read on her Patreon, so won’t you check that out and give her some money, please?
