Lilli Carr was born in Los Angeles in 1983 and currently lives and works in Chicago. Her animated films have shown in festivals throughout the US and abroad, including the Sundance Film Festival and the Aurora Film Festival, and her animation and comics work were on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago for the month of January in 2011. Last year she co-founded the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, and is working on plans for the 2011 fest. She is the author of the books Tales of Woodsman Pete, The Lagoon, Nine Ways to Disappear, and The Fir Tree, and has recently contributed stories to Mome, The Believer Magazine, Best American Comics 2010, and Best American Nonrequired Reading 2010. Right now she is into figuring out the ukelele, sitting in the snow, and working on a new book that will collect her short stories and strips.
