Connor Willumsen is a Canadian cartoonist and visual artist whose work has garnered various awards and honors, including a fellowship at The Center for Cartoon Studies. He was recently featured in the Best American Comics and Kramers Ergot anthologies. His first widely published book, Anti-Gone, was a finalist for an LA Times Book Prize, a Doug Wright Award, and an Ignatz Award. It was also recently adapted into a live mixed-reality theatrical performance that featured at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. As part of Parallel Lines, Connor Willumsen’s project consists of live portrait sessions over video chat with other home-ridden individuals around the world. His drawings are made simply and directly, allowing him to only draw what he can see on screen.
