I'm Lori Collins, an illustrator & comic book artist based in the greater Seattle area. I am currently illustrating a children's book called "The Fabulous Glitter Girl" written by Morgan Scheel. I also have a few comic book projects in the works, including "Future Legends", a story about dealing with puberty and super powers in Modern Day Japan.
I usually attend 6-8 Anime Conventions a year all across the country. If you are looking for a current schedule, check it out here. If you are a representative from a convention and are interested in having me run a panel on art, the business of art, or "how to draw" panels for your event, please feel free to contact me. I'm an excellent panelist.
Speaking of Conventions, I'm also the Art Manager for Sakura-con, Seattle's very own anime convention. I'm always looking for staff members!
If you live in the greater Seattle Area, and are looking to learn how to draw, I teach lessons privately to individuals and small groups. For more information on lessons read all about them here.
For information on commissions, please contact me for price quotes and other details.
