About Larry Feign

Larry Feign is an award-winning writer and artist whose work has appeared in Time, The Economist, Fortune, the New York Times, and other publications. He has directed animated cartoons for Cartoon Network and Disney Television. His satirical books have been consistent bestsellers in his home base of Hong Kong, while his 'Lily Wong' comic strip was considered a bellwether of life and politics in the territory. His satirical commentary about the Hong Kong handover was Time Magazine's first-ever full-page cartoon essay. He earned his MFA in Writing from Pacific University, and received a MacDowell Fellowship from America's oldest artist colony. He is currently working on several books, including both humor and historical fiction. Larry has been married for over three decades to the clinical psychologist Dr. Cathy Tsang-Feign. In his spare time, Larry enjoys cycling and playing saxophone, though rarely at the same time. His mother still wishes he were a doctor. Check his website at www.larryfeign.comshow more
