Share this post
Today's featured creator is Erin Wilson, a New Orleans-based artist, graphic novelist, and unflinchingly honest observer of life. Snowbird will be her account of a winter spent within a tightly knit artist's community in the bayou, unraveling her friendships, hardships, lessons learned, and total joy achieved. True to form, she answered our questions in comic book form. Consider us sincerely charmed!
