About Liana Finck

New Yorker cartoonist Liana Finck finds catharsis in Instagram. The critically-acclaimed artist known for her line-drawn comics, raw simplicity, unsteadiness and wit shares her existential anxieties through pen and paper to a devoted Instagram audience of 200K+. Knowing her fans love her work, she offers up the rare chance for her followers to tattoo the cartoons at-will. Her simple running commentaries on alienation, anxieties and “micro-unkindnesses” are as soothing to fans as they are Liana. With a promising and rising career as an author, Liana’s second book Passing for Human: A Graphic Memoir was released to critical acclaim September 2018.
