About

lillian lee of empty bamboo girl

I’m Lillian Lee, a cartoonist + designer + illustrator, living in Boston with my husband, son and cat. I read a lot, watch a lot of YouTube videos about food, practice lion dance and obsess over all things Hello Kitty.

Empty Bamboo Girl is a creative space where I celebrate and explore the food, history and traditions of my Chinese American life.

The Empty Bamboo Girl comics are published in the Sampan Newspaper, the only bilingual Chinese-English newspaper in New England.
