Lenny (Olena) Lishchenko is in fact, not a boy. She is an illustrator, designer, chronic storytelller, knowledge junkie and TaeKwonDo enthusiast.
Originally born in Kyiv, she lives in Toronto now.
Lenny likes (not including the obvious): TaeKwonDo, good books, noses, her cat Fat Tony, psychoanalyzing the hell out of strangers, writing, and the satisfaction of getting ink out from underneath her fingernails.
For comic work, Lenny is on Tapastic
