About the Instructor
Comic Artist, Tuna
My name is Rachel - known in the art industry as, Tuna! I am a self-employed freelance artist with over 5 years of experience in comic art and ten years in the professional art field. I've worked on many self-published comic shorts, contributed to multiple anthology collections, and illustrated two graphic novels published via crowdfunded support on Kickstarter.
I am currently working with Astrolago Press and Vault Comics to illustrate two graphic novel adventures! Over the years, I have learned and discovered so much about the comics, as well as it's potential as a valuable storytelling medium. Comics is where my heart lies, and encouraging others to explore in that journey with me is one of my passions. There is not a better feeling than holding a finished comic series in your hands, and I want to share this feeling with you too!
Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
I have been doodling comics since the early years, but without a deep knowledge and understanding of the process, I became lost after only a few pages. My passion for manga and webcomics grew in my teens, but only after transitioning into the professional art world did I discover the discipline to follow through on a comic art project.
Completing my first comic series 'Cafe Creep' in an experimental 8-page story, led me to a love of the medium and allowed me to discover the value of a completing a story. Since then, I have pursued and created opportunities to continue to make comics which have ultimately led to open deals with two international publishers which is where I began my journey as a full-time comics illustrator.
