 About the Artist

 

Myra Lara is an architectural designer, cartoonist, and cultural worker based in Seattle, WA originally from Brownsville, Texas. A true generalist at heart, she explores the intersections of housing justice, environmental racism, border communities, gender and racial identities via self-published comics, zines, protest art, podcasts, social media, and paper architecture. Their current and ongoing projects include carving out a queer commune inside a monster single-family home, building a neighborhood mutual aid network, and breaking down the housing crisis in artful informational morsels.
