Paper Country by Finny Li Doherty

Paper Country is the story of Finny Li Doherty's family immigration to the United States. In 2019, while learning about current and historical immigration policies and experiences, he wished to preserve our family’s experiences through art, a lens that has been important to all of us. Through oral interviews with his mom, aunt, grandmother, and brother, we wove together this reflection on 20th century Chinese immigration, the American Dream, and creating a life here together.

Finny Li Doherty is an artist and writer based in the US. Specializing in traditional media, he makes watercolor and pen and ink illustrations. He writes and draws his own comics with queer and Asian American themes.
