Instructor Biography

Li Ly, Manga Artist

I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. I've done promotional work for such websites as Anime Paw, Goboiano and Studio-Puroto, and attended The Art Institute. I love drawing comics, and I would love to help out those who love the artform as much as I do, and to help inspire!
