2014 in Review: Li Chen

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2014?
I published my third volume of Extra Ordinary this year! It was a lot less stressful this second time around (I published Vol 1 & 2 at the same time in 2012) and I got to enjoy the process more. I'm really pleased with how the book turned out.

What are some of the comics you've enjoyed in 2014?
I know I've mentioned Yotsuba&! before but I'm still addicted to it. Every time I read it I discover new things that I try to implement into my own work. I've also been getting into Kate Beaton's comics.

What is something non-comics that you have enjoyed in 2014?  
Every year I get really excited about the International Film Festival and this year I fell in love with a French animated film called Ernest and Celestine. It is such a beautiful, funny, and delightful movie and the soundtrack is great. I can't say enough good things about it, it's brilliant.

What are you looking forward to in 2015?
In 2012 when you asked me this question I said "Making more comics, making more art. Petting cats." That's pretty much still relevant.
