Following a Chinese egg farmer who becomes a goddess when struck through the head by a piece of hail, Ellipsis is a contemporary fable by Brooklyn-based cartoonist Diane Zhou. The story and page layouts of this comic were inspired by the characters generated when Zhou used an Optical Character Recognition program to interpret family photos.
"[Zhou] goes above and beyond with ambitious page layouts on top of her dazzling use of color." - The Comics Journal
Diane Zhou lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She is a painter and comic artist who revels in the "inauthentic" space of Diasporic Chinese/American culture using cuteness, disgust, and broken language.
