Reimena Yee is a strange and fancy graphic novelist, illustrator and designer. Hailing from the dusty metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, she is now based in Melbourne, Australia. Once a STEM student and academic aspirant, she decided instead to pursue a passion for the world and all of its histories and cultures within – a passion which she weaves into her art and stories.
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 Seance Tea Party 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 an illustrator and designer, she creates whimsical and poppy artwork for clients like Dropmix, Girls Make Games, Adventure Time, DFTBA's Bizarre Beasts, and Penguin Workshop among many others.
Elsewhere, she is the co-founder and co-organiser of UNNAMED, a regional grassroots comics collective for visual-literary creators in Southeast Asia focusing on community-building and resource-sharing through workshops, panels and partnerships. And when she's not coming up with ideas for UNNAMED, she works part-time as an editor and admin assistant in Hiveworks Comics, an online webcomics and graphic novel studio-publisher.
