Author Biography

Jeannie Lee always had an affinity for comics and cartoons—she grew up with Korean comics (man-hwa) as a child, and was a devoted Disney fan. When she first discovered Japanese manga and anime, however, she knew she was hooked for life. Jeannie started drawing at a very young age, and her supportive parents found a talented local contemporary Western artist by the name of Ji Young Oh, who took Jeannie under her wing for over seven years. Jeannie considers Ms. Oh to be the most important artistic influence in her life. Her education also included two years studying traditional character animation at California Institute of the Arts, where Jeannie discovered that while she really loved animation, she preferred to watch it rather than make it herself. However, from this education spawned interests in Flash animation and working with vectors. Jeannie considers herself very fortunate to be able to indulge in many types of artistic expression, and plans to continuously increase her skill set in the years to come. Currently, Jeannie is an Art Lead/Producer at Playdom, and she has worked for Gaia Online, Marvel Entertainment, Inc., TOKYOPOP, and UDON Entertainment. When she isn’t working, she indulges in various crafts and hobbies, such as knitting.
