Sonia Leong is a comics/manga illustrator and author of many drawing guides, including Draw Manga: Complete Skills (Search Press). Her debut graphic novel was Manga Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet (SelfMadeHero). She’s worked on Doctor Who (BBC Books), Assassin’s Creed (Titan), Domo-kun (TokyoPop) and Bravest Warriors (VIZ), amongst many other projects in comics. She also illustrates for children’s books, fashion, advertising, film and television. She is the Director of Sweatdrop Studios, an independent comic publisher based in the United Kingdom and is currently working on the Chronicles Of Ciel, an illustrated series of fantasy light novels.
We are thrilled to have Sonia as one of the nine artists for our trail. When outlining the project brief, Sonia replied with “Can I go full Manga?” Yes, yes! Now you can understand the reason for our excitement.
This fabulous artist will also be hosting two Manga workshops. Make sure you book as soon as they go live, as Sonia’s workshops sold out very quickly during the 2019 Comics Salopia festival!
