Christi Furnas is a queer, Minneapolis based author, illustrator, oil painter and disability rights advocate. She has exhibited in galleries across Minnesota and New York. Christi’s career includes more than ten years of arts administration, teaching art workshops, and numerous speaking engagements, including an interview on Minnesota Public Radio.
Christi's debut graphic novel, Crazy Like a Fox: Adventures in Schizophrenia uses humor and fantastical critters to reflect on her own experience. Fox Foxerson gets off the bus in a new city looking for friends, employment and to make it as an artist. Fox finds that some friends are not so friendly and Fox's new job is a little soul crushing. Fox is on the verge of a nervous breakdown when they make a call for help and are whisked into the mental healthcare system. The book will be on shelves April 2024. You can preorder your copy here.
