Tensei Datteba!

Batwing Tensei is a sole trader operated by Chonnie, pictured left. They have an Advanced Diploma of Fashion Design and Merchandising, and Certificate III in Micro Business Management.

They’ve been drawing for over a decade and found their niche as a toony digital artist, utilising that style for their fashion studies to create unique illustrations. Since then they’ve moved into comic artistry, focusing on webcomic writing, development and illustration.

Their love for costume was cemented during their fashion studies, wherein they twisted their assignment briefs to be more costume than fashion. While there was resistance from their teachers, they were adamant in creating theatrical ranges over fashion ranges.

Nowadays Tensei is a part-time artist, merchandise developer and convention exhibitor. They also work part-time for a fashion brand in Melbourne.

Alongside illustration and writing they also run Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, including a home-brew campaign called ‘The Purifiers of Ivory Vale’.
