Christina Lee is a Korean-American illustrator, zinemaker, printmaker, designer, and animator who has been working as a professional artist since she graduated from Carnegie Mellon in 2014. In 2016, she was selected by Printed Matter to be an artist-in-residence at the Ace Hotel Pittsburgh, and in 2018, she was one of the 22 local creatives under 40 named “Who’s Next: Art” by The Incline. As a professional illustrator, some of her clients include NPR, Teen Vogue, Vice, The LA Times, T-Mobile, Creative Nonfiction, and Penguin Books. Though she most strongly identifies as an illustrator, she has started to develop her curatorial practice by organizing the Pittsburgh Zine Fair and group exhibitions. She seeks to highlight underrepresented people, specifically female and non-binary artists, through her curatorial projects. In addition to her illustration and curatorial work, Christina is a founding member of Pullproof Studio, a community print shop located in the Garfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
