I am a self-published comic artist and illustrator who enjoys drawing silly things and making up far-fetched stories. I put out my first title in 2009 and since then have continued to attend various events selling my work. Ushio is a pen name by the way, although you probably guessed that already.
It’s probably fair to say my main inspirations come from Japanese popular culture (predominantly manga, anime, and suchlike), but pretty much anything that appears before me will make an impression to be honest.
I am London-based (in case you were wondering).
Work is done predominantly with digital media using programs such as Manga Studio and Photoshop. More recently I am tempted into dabbling with hand-inking my work and using watercolours. I like to experiment and take risks both in media choice as well as in my narratives. Limits aren’t my thing.
