Rawand Issa: Illustrator and Writer based in Beirut – Lebanon.
Born in 1992, she worked as a writer for 5 years in the local journalistic field, before switching into Illustration and comic making in 2015. Without any collaboration with publishing houses or any commitment to the rules of the market, Rawand Issa published her first illustration Zine “Mish Min El Marikh/Not from Mars”.
“Not from Mars” talks about relatable personal situations. They are common to many of us insofar as the personal is always in one way or another also political and thus public.
At the time, she works as a freelance illustrator, besides a day-time job in Communication and Design.
