Reimena Yee is a strange and fancy graphic novelist, illustrator, designer and comics outreach lead. Hailing from the dusty Malaysian metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, she is now based in Melbourne, Australia. She is greatly interested in the world, its histories and its cultures — a passion that once brought her down the road to a STEM career for half her life, before leaving to communicate her love of the world instead through art and story.
She is the author-illustrator of the gothic comics, The World in Deeper Inspection, the Eisner and Mcduffie-nominated The Carpet Merchant of Konstantiniyya, the bildungsroman Séance Tea Party, the whimsical adventure-comedy My Aunt is a Monster, and the latest retelling of the life and legends of Alexander the Great. She also writes The Makers Club series, co-created with Tintin Pantoja.
As illustrator and designer, she brings the whimsical and poppy for clients like Dropmix, Girls Make Games, Adventure Time, DFTBA's Bizarre Beasts, and Penguin Workshop among many others.
Elsewhere, Reimena is dedicated to comics outreach, documenting her creative process, and creating resources for fellow comics creators. She is the co-founder of UNNAMED, a regional grassroots collective for the comics ecosystem in Southeast Asia, and the Cartoonist Coop, a society for cartoonists across the world. She is the curator and taxonomist behind The Creator’s Guide of Comics Devices, and author of many free resources on her blog. She works part-time as lead data admin and manager and executive admin at Hiveworks Comics.
