Wenting Li is an illustrator & inveterate reader working out of Toronto. Her practise includes painting, ceramics, murals, and comics-making, all with a preoccupation for colour, movement, shape, and the subtleties of complementing story with picture. She is especially interested in following the thread of whimsy, chaos, and the inexplicable that runs through the seemingly mundane parts of everyday life: falling asleep, looking in a mirror, human migration, digital privacy, crossing a field. 

She would love to work with you - and wishes she was friends with your cat. Feel free to get in touch with any questions, or to say hello:
