About Our Cover Artist: Likhain
Likhain is a queer Filipina artist who migrated to rural Australia for True Love. She works in traditional media, primarily ink and watercolour, and is always keen to experiment with gold, grit, and glorious chaos to create queer postcolonial art that defies the status quo. She writes about art, mental illness, and resistance at patreon.com/likhain, and is intermittently on Twitter as @likhain.
