Sarah Becan is a prolific self-published comics artist, author, illustrator and designer based in Chicago, and founder of Shortpants Press. She won a Xeric Award and a Stumptown Trophy for Outstanding Debut for her first graphic novel, The Complete Ouija Interviews, and her work has twice been nominated for the Ignatz Award. She is probably best known for I Think Youre Sauceome, an autobiographical webcomic about food, health, and self-image.
Becan's second and most recent graphic novel, Shuteye: Six Tales of Dreams and Dreamers, was funded with a successful Kickstarter campaign and released in early 2012.
In her spare time, Sarah plays the accordion, and also video games. She lives in Logan Square with two talkative cats and a boy named Niles.
