Websites: my website, my blog, my webcomic, "Freewheel" (currently on hiatus)
Bio: Liz Baillie was born and raised in New York City and currently resides in Brooklyn. She has been self-publishing her minicomic "My Brain Hurts" since 2002 and a collection of the first five issues was recently published by Microcosm Publishing. "My Brain Hurts" chronicles the adventures of Kate and Joey, two queer punk teenagers in New York City, as they get in perpetual trouble with the police when they aren't flirting over loud music or postering their high school with flyers to allow same sex couples at prom.
Liz also draws a webcomic called "Freewheel," (currently on hiatus) about a young girl with an active imagination who goes on a quest to find her older brother.
Liz will be appearing at the following events in 2008:
Stumptown: April 26-27, Portland, OR
MoCCA: June 7-8, New York, NY
Small Press Expo (SPX): October 4-5, Bethesda, MD
