Namie started drawing to make one friend that was into anime and games. As a professional illustrator she now draws for a living. Yes, if she does not draw she will die.
Noticing she doodled more on class notes instead of taking them, she thought drawing was a lot of fun and it wouldn’t be so bad to do this forever.
Little did she know it would be so much work and not so fun… but she never gave up!
She studied illustration and graphic design while publishing drawings on social media and books, stubborn about drawing in “anime style” because it was what she loved. She did a short study abroad in Japan to learn the language.
Even though she resides in Australia, she is currently high in demand in the Japanese market. She’s worked for popular series like Fate/Grand Order, Re:zero and Azur Lane. She won the Pixiv x Fate/Grand Order contest last year. Recently, she has worked with Studio …lan and Sekai Project as the character designer and artist for the yuri visual novel “The Waters Above.”
Her favorite pictures to draw are ones with positive energy and a lot of color. They are usually described as fun and healing. She likes to eat donuts.
