Batwing Tensei is a sole trader operated by Chonnie, pictured left. They hold 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 fashion 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.
Both online and in person, please call them Chonnie or Tensei and refer to them using neutral (they/them) pronouns.
