Black Countree gal, now living in Cambridge after returning from Japan in 2004. I'm pretty hyper but I still hate mornings and Mondays. Even now, supposedly as an adult!
I am a part-time freelance manga-style ilustrator and comicker. In 2006 I won a place in the Neo Magazine UK Manga Competition with "Sea Bream dream", and in 2007 I won a place in Tokyopop's 3rd UK & IR Rising Stars of Manga competition with "Until Death Do Us Party". I have also contributed a 10-page manga to The Mammoth Book of Zombie Comics. I have contributed manga illustrations and tutorials for numerous "How To" books, and I created illustrations for Shout Magazine and Just17 Magazine.
I also sew, knit, paint, make dresses, purses and whatnot - I obviously pretend to be a 1337 granny. Still can't get to grips with crochet though.
