is creating comics, podcasts, and community!

My name is MariNaomi and I'm a queer Japanese-American cartoonist, podcaster, and community organizer.

My comics career began with my first published autobio comic in 1998 in Action Girl Comics. Since then I've published four graphic memoirs, a sci-fi-ish young adult graphic novel trilogy called Life on Earth (the last of the trilogy comes out in 2020), and many many gags, strips, diary comics, and more.



In addition to being a cartoonist, I'm also the creator and administrator of the Cartoonists of ColorQueer Cartoonists Database, and soon, the Disabled Cartoonists Database. These databases, which together feature thousands of comics creators, are free to the public. They're a good place to browse and discover the work and talent of marginalized creators. 

This Patreon was created as a way to support my work, and to reward and connect with my readers. I'm offering special access to my work, my artistic process, and a back-log of out-of-print comics, exclusive to my beloved patrons. This includes Patreon-exclusive diary comics, as well as sneak peeks of comics before they're available to the rest of the world.



The money I've made from Patreon has gone into maintaining the databases, creating the podcast Ask Bi Grlz, and more. All this wouldn't have happened without the generosity of my patrons.

If you enjoy my comics or have benefited from my community work, please consider chipping in. Thank you so much!
