It's Me!


I'm so chuffed with the manga style version of me that my sister, Kate, has drawn that I thought I'd share it with everyone. She uses a line art software called Manga Studio and then colours in using Photoshop. Kate has always wanted to be a cartoon artist and developed an interest in Japanese style comics, films and computer games (she'll probably tell me I've got that all wrong!). Since no one needs to teach her to draw she did her degree in Japanese and just started an MA in Computer Game Design. She and her friends have a website www.indiemanga.com and have just launched a book of their work. Kate is known as Darth Mongoose online (don't ask!), there is a link about her on the website home page on the right hand side.

That's too cool! Kudos to your sis!

Seems like you got everything right, thought the not doing art thing was less 'didn't need it' and more 'emotionally traumatised by worst art teacher ever'.

Thanks for the comments, I really love it. Kate said that the dog was going to be Fox but it turned out too small so she turned it into Whisper! LOL!
