Hi! I'm Margaret, also known as Magga.
I'm a Thai-American illustrator, comic artist, and educator based out of Baltimore, MD, where I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) with a BFA in Illustration in 2017. Some of my favorite things include metal, dinosaurs, giant robots, tabletop gaming, and lipstick!
My stories and illustration put a heavy focus on big adventures with relatable characters, themes of multicultural identity and diaspora, found families, and goofy, high-energy artwork. I want to make you laugh as much as think, and I aspire to create the stories I've always craved and never got.
Likewise, my goals as an educator emphasize sensitive global narratives and adding cultural nuance to knowledge. I set out to teach using everything around us, from museum artifacts to pop culture narratives to our own personal stories, to develop critical thinking, effective kindness, and our own unique empowerment.
