Introducing our Publishing Assistant, Xinmei Liu

Starting in 2019, Xinmei Liu has been a tremendous addition to the Paradise Systems team. As we were working to complete the Naked Body anthology, Xinmei's design and editorial experience were invaluable. Since then, she has also worked on translating, editing, and designing a series of comics by Chinese cartoonists that respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can read the first of these comics here, here, and here.

In addition to working with us, Xinmei is an accomplished illustrator and printer. She is a graduate of Pratt Institute and is currently completing a MFA Illustration as Visual Essay program at the School of Visual Arts in New York. You can find more of her work here.

Below are excerpted images from her latest project Model Citizen Guidelines.
