Tasha Mukanik



   Tasha “Tas” Mukanik (said: mechanic) is a queer artist situated in Montreal, originally from Calgary. She lives with her partner, Winter Jay Kiakas, and together they own Windy & Wallflower, where they collaborate on way too many stories. She enjoys drawing comics and has worked on multiple projects, namely The Sanity Circus, her long-running webcomic. Her debut graphic novel is Lost Time which is set to be published by Penguin Razorbill in 2023. Her specialties are with pencils, flatting and colours, and her interests are in dinosaurs and hot monster women, of which you can probably find traces of in all her work.
