Yasmine Pirouz

Bio

At the time of this writing, Yasmine is a 27-year-old comic artist and freelance illustrator who has spent practically her whole life saturated in cartoons and education.

After getting a B.A. in Art and B.S. in Applied Learning and Development from the University of Texas at Austin, she earned her Masters in Illustration from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Since that life-changing experience abroad, she has been self-publishing her epic web comic Torus Link semi-based on this journey, collaborating on children’s books, making short comics, and exhibiting and selling her artwork as a freelancer.

When teaching kids, Yasmine strives to create an environment where everyone can learn, belong, and have fun without barriers— encouraging the celebration of everyone’s story.
