Maia Kobabe

Maia Kobabe attends California College of the Arts in San Francisco, where she is working towards her MFA in Comics, as part of the college's first class for that major, and is scheduled to graduate in 2015. Maia is interested in everything to do with books- reading them, writing them, illustrating them, hand binding, self-publishing, book reviews, shelving books, etc. She's worked in libraries for the past 10 years because "I love being around books." Maia has an undergraduate degree from Dominican University of California, a BFA in Studio Art and a minor in Art History. She is currently (slowly) writing and illustrating an all ages medieval fantasy adventure comic called "The Thief's Tale" which started as a webcomic and has turned into her Master's Thesis.
