Sarah Becan has been drawing comics since she was very small. Her food-based autobiographical webcomic, “I Think You’re Sauceome”, sparked a love of food and culinary illustration, and her work has since appeared in various publications, including Saveur Magazine,, StarChefs, and the Chicago Reader. Her first graphic novel, The Complete Ouija Interviews, was a recipient of a Xeric award, and she illustrated The Adventures of Fat Rice (Ten Speed Press, 2016). She would be very happy to do nothing but draw food all day.

Sarah is appearing on the Ramen: Illustrated panel at 12 PM on Sunday in Room 1E13.

Anime NYC presents “Ramen: Illustrated” – a panel discussion featuring the creators of the newly released comic book cookbook, “Let’s Make Ramen!” – chef/author Hugh Amano and illustrator/artist Sarah Becan – alongside home-cook and ramen-educator extraordinaire Mike “Ramen_Lord” Satinover of Akahoshi Ramen! Join us as they breakdown and demystify the ramen creating process, talk about the gate-way pleasures that come with learning HOW-TO make this wildly-beloved dish from scratch and, hopefully, inspire a new-wave of passionate ramen-lovers to boldly jumpstart their own ramen-journey – ultimately creating a movement which will influence the dynamic evolution of ramen in America. If you’ve ever wished you could somehow re-create that amazing bowl you slurped at your favorite ramen shop… this panel is for YOU!!!

And for all you budding artists/illustrators out there who are curious about how such a cool project like a graphic-novel cookbook comes to life – come get inspired and hear the book’s origin-story from chef/author Hugh Amano and comics-illustrator Sarah Becan!!

Moderator and self-professed ramen-nerd Jamie Li from will lead this illuminating discussion followed by Q&A.
