Sabba Khan, UK
Newham-based South Asian Muslim visual artist, graphic novelist and architectural designer.

She uses lived experience, memories and oral histories to expose how wider policies affect our day to day. Sabba Khan’s debut graphic novel, The Roles We Play, is published by Myriad Editions, and is now available in bookshops nationwide.
Weng Pixin (or Pix for short), Singapore
Born in 1983 and grew up in sunny Singapore, an island city located along the equator. As a child, Pixin’s father used to tell her stories- stories that reflected his curious nature. When Pix began making art, she wanted to express that same curious nature in her semi-autobiographical comics.
