Jin Wicked: Visual and Performance Artist, Illustrator, Podcaster, and Writer
Jin Wicked is a 40 year-old visual and performance artist, illustrator, podcaster, and writer who works with the guiding philosophy that "Life is art." She is most well-known for her multiple slice-of-life webcomic series, detailed ink illustrations, and "Happy Happy Rat" rat mascots. Her autobiographical work explores the complexity of identity and self-image in this modern age, and bridges the gap between colourful humour and difficult subject matter such as anxiety, depression, mental illness, and neurodiversity. In addition to comics, Jin produces studio art, essays, poetry, podcasts, photography, skit comedy, and other short videos. A Texas native, Jin moved to the Saint Paul, Minnesota, area in 2015. Original artwork, books, T-shirts, and other merchandise are available to purchase online.
