Alum Breena Nuñez on Identity, Autobiography and Crocodile Girl
THE BEAT -- Breena Nuñez is a cartoonist and musician based in the Bay area. She is working on a crowd-funded project called They call Me Mix, an autobiographical comic about how the author (Lourdes) came to identify as non-binary.
“I’m a cartoonist and musician from the Bay Area of California who was mostly raised in San Bruno by my migrant family from Central America After high school I attended San Francisco State and studied graphic design while also participating in a few student organizations such as USEU, MEChA and Clinica Martin-Baro (a student run clinic based in San Francisco),” Nuñez says. “But I feel like I’m not so much of a traditional designer since I use most of my time to create zines, mini-comics while also being an after school art teacher within the San Francisco School District.”
