Sunmi is a cartoonist and illustrator based in what is known as Baltimore, Maryland, on the occupied land of the Piscataway people. Their work explores themes of emotional distance and fantastical femininity, within a framework of queer and Korean diasporic identity, history, and mythology. Their debut YA graphic novel “Firebird,” which follows these threads, will be published with HarperCollins in 2023.
