Katherine Tsai has loved dragons, manga, videogames, and art since the age of nine. It seems she has always appreciated a good story. A self-proclaimed nerd goblinand talented artist who is 90% Chipotle burritos, the freelance illustrator has rooted her works in classic stories and animation inspired by her own art heroes like Kenji Tsuruta. Tsai’s self-taught art is also driven by her Taiwanese-American heritage, and it shows in her detailed illustrations. When she’s not creating something beautiful or studying, she runs a blog that features Asian artists throughout the ages. Her eye for composition is clear, even in the pieces she curates for the Asian art blog.”
