I'm a professional comic artist and illustrator specialising in the Anime/Manga style. My first graphic novel was Manga Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet (SelfMadeHero). I've won awards from the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) 2008 for Romeo and Juliet ; Winner in Tokyopop's UK Rising Stars of Manga competition (2005/06) and Winner in NEO Magazine's 2005 Manga Competition. I designed the Catgirl mascot for Wacom-Europe's Manga campaign. My artwork features prominently in the British movie, Popcorn (2007). I contributed to Comic Book Tattoo (Image Comics), Tales inspired by the musician Tori Amos. I was Lead Artist for Draw Manga by Sweatdrop Studios. My works with Sweatdrop include Once Upon a Time..., Cyborg Butterfly and Satan's Amazon; and the anthologies Sugardrops, Pink is for Girls and Drop Dead Monstrous.
Currently I'm working with Infinite Ideas on the Manga Life series of self-help comics, the first titles being Find True Love and Be Creative. I'm the artist for Aya.Takeo, a full-colour comic published weekly online from April 2007-2010.
