Artist - Kate Ashwin
Artist Kate AshwinKate Ashwin has been making internet comics since 2002. Kate is best known for her Kickstarter-funded 'Widdershins' comics: Victorian-era adventure stories set in a magically-infused Yorkshire town, featuring grumpy bounty hunters, failed magicians, and more besides. Her other popular title 'Darken' is darker than Widdershins but unmistakably rendered in her distinctive style. Kate's drawing technique involves working directly with a tablet-screen and stylus, building up densely layered images. 'It can be a very time-consuming process'. Kate uses Manga Studio software and claims to be most productive between midnight and 2am.
