tina chu (pronouns: she/her) is Mississauga/Toronto-based illustrator and zinemaker. Her love for word + image was sparked by the language textbooks she grew up with in Taiwan, where each chapter featured a different artist. Formally trained as a cultural theorist + linguist, she’s pursuing illustration part-time at OCADu while working as an instructional designer.
Between class assignments and work, tina makes zines that share information or share reflections. in days ahead, she is looking for opportunities where her work in illustration and comics will converge with her work in learning.
madcrush is named for the comics tina mailed to friends detailing her crushes of the day, way back in the day.
