Arts Emergency

Kristyna Baczynski


I am a freelance illustrator, designer and comic book artist who grew up in The Pennines of Yorkshire, to a family from The Carpathians of Ukraine.

I work from my studio in Leeds, UK. I hold a Northern Design Award, was Thought Bubble’s 2011 Artist In Residence and was nominated for a British Comic Award in 2012.

My work has appeared in publications from Blank Slate Books, Anorak, Solipsistic Pop, Paper Science, Hic+Hoc and more. I teach Graphic Arts at Leeds Metropolitan University and publishes comics, books and zines.
