Empty Bamboo Girl is a creative space where I celebrate and explore the food, history and traditions of my Chinese American life.
I’m Lillian Lee, a designer and illustrator, who lives in Boston with my husband, son and cat. I love to draw, eat chocolate chip cookies and obsess over all things Hello Kitty.
The Empty Bamboo Girl comics were published in the Sampan Newspaper, the only bilingual Chinese-English newspaper in New England, from 2016-2020.
In 2019, the comic branched off into apparel, stationary and artwork. So, pick up some merch and thanks for visiting!
