The Yarn: Episode 6 – Lark Pien

The Yarn

What is The Yarn?

S1 E6 – Lark Pien

Lark Pien is a comics creator (Long Tail Kitty) and colorist (Boxers & Saints, Sunny Side Up). I talked to her about walking away from a job in architecture to persue her passion for comics.

My Highlight

My favorite part of the interview is at the 10:44 mark, when Lark describes her decision to leave a stable architecture job and begin making comics. It was a brave choice, and the comics world is better because of it.
