Biography:
An educator by day... a manga artist by night!
I was born and raised in Russia, and have been drawing for as long as I can remember. At 12, I discovered manga and anime and started drawing my own comics, much to the horror of my art teacher. Not that it bothered me much - I was too busy enjoying myself ^^
In 2004 I moved to the UK and got into drawing manga again, taking private commissions and entering contests such as IMAF and Manga Jiman.
I joined Sweatdrop Studios in 2009. Sweatdrop artists have long been my roIe models, so I am extremely proud to be part of the gang now ^^
My main project is Chemical Blue. I have just published Volume 1 and it's available from Sweatdrop now. Next volume is already in the making, so watch this space!
