Mylo Choy

Mylo Choy finds comfort in the spaces between things. As a mixed-race and nonbinary person, moving between worlds feels like home to them. Born and raised in Wisconsin, they also developed a strong connection to Hawaii, where their mother was born and raised. For over 10 years, they were employed in outdoor education, living and working in many places, including Maine and Hawaii, but mostly they moved between New York City and the woods upstate. They currently live in the Hudson Valley, exploring planting roots in one place for a while. Mylo’s work—ranging from music to graphic stories and comics—uses the inherent tensions of multimedia to bring to life the space they inhabit between worlds. Inspired by nature’s ability to offer peace and perspective, their work is contemplative without being brooding and soothing without being escapist. Middle Distance is their first full-length graphic novel.
