About Eric's Sister
A slice of life graphic novel set in Hong Kong, Eric’s Sister explores creative doubt, the uneasy love between family members, and friendship as a salve in the aftermath of tragedy.


Lisa and her brother Eric are aspiring artists in their twenties. Lisa has always loved drawing, and Eric is a painter poised for a career breakthrough. But as they each struggle to make their mark, there is a disquieting undercurrent of what they can’t tell each other. Lisa has always played second fiddle to her brother, but how much longer can she feel like a supporting actor in her own life?

The first 150 pages of Eric’s Sister ran as a webcomic from May to October 2023.
