Australia-Japan Society of NSW
Through the magic of Zoom, Queenie will present her perspective on manga and its current place in Australia and the Western world. She will also show us some of her fabulous work and talk about the challenges of being an artist in the field.
The presentation will be around 30 minutes long and afterwards there will be an opportunity to engage with Queenie online via chat or Zoom.
Queenie Chan was born in Hong Kong, and migrated to Australia when she was six years old. Her first published work was 'The Dreaming', a mystery-horror series for LA-based manga publisher TOKYOPOP, which has since been translated into multiple languages. She then collaborated on several graphic novels with best-selling author Dean Koontz for his ‘Odd Thomas’ series, as well as with author Kylie Chan for ‘Small Shen’. After that, she worked on several anthologies, and completed a fairytale inspired fantasy series called 'Fabled Kingdom'.
She is currently studying for a PhD at Macquarie University, and creating a series of biographical young adult comics on famous historical queens. Please visit www.queeniechan.com for more information.
