Please help me identify this comic

Can you identify this comic/graphic novel? Coming-of-age type story about a girl who is gay, Canadian, has a degree in (I think) ceramics or something else she doesn't use, and makes ends barely-sort-of meet by working as a bike messenger until some art or writing starts to pay off. It was likely autobiographical or partly so. Looked like it was written and set anywhere from the late 80s to mid 90s. I believe it was offline originally, but put online maybe ten or so years ago.

Pretty sure I read it when someone on metafilter linked to it several years back, but searching hasn't turned up anything that looks familiar.

Best answer: Could it possibly be Liliane?

Yay! I'm so glad I could help! :D

I think I remember reading her on Diaryland, of all places.

Response by poster: Oh diaryland, those were the days. That could have been it, too. The story is just as reassuring to my broke self as it was then.
