RAD COLLAB ALERT! Thanks to @duluthmakerspace for putting Devin Garret & I under the same roof. He builds amazing tables & his most recent work can be found @hoopsbrewing in Duluth. We decided to burn my artwork into a table top to create a unique & customizable aspect to his business.. and wow, I am in love!! ❤️ follow @wanderinglineart for more!
Being an #artist is an act of revolution and dissent in itself. By creating art you are essentially saying that this is something that the world is lacking and needing. You're not completely satisfied with what the world is offering and make something to fill that void...without waiting for someone else to do so. #art
Meet the artist: I'm Liz. I live in Minneapolis with my husband and our mutt Lennie Brisco. I make autobiographical comics and zines, write freelance, and occasionally paint. I'm an admin for @minnesotamurderinos and volunteer at @southpointacupuncture. I'm addicted to post-punk music, Cadbury mini-eggs, and La Croix. Oh and thrifting. And Chinese food. I think that basically covers it. 🖤 #meettheartist#artistlife#artistbio#mplsartist#mnartist#bio
