Sonia Liao '14 (Illustration B.F.A.) is designing covers and characters for Kulipari: Heritage, a comic book series based on a popular Kulipari children's book trilogy. Created by former NFL star and Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman, Trevor Pryce, Kulipari has been a big success, with lines of toys, a mobile app, and an Internet game. On Sept. 2, a TV show based on the books will debut in several languages on Netflix. The comic book series as well as a line of clothing from Under Armour will also launch in connection with the new Netflix series.
Pryce, who seeks out art online, visited MICA's website and found samples of Liao's work. Because he likes using local talent, Pryce reached out to the Illustration alumna about working on the new comic series. Liao is an independent comic artist, and in addition to Kulipari: Heritage, she has worked on the comics Synopsis, Feast, and Marionettes among others. She is also a consultant working at ComicFlix, a company providing a unique video-to-comics platform.
