Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Laura - I am freelance illustrator, cartoonist, artist and designer. Click on the headers in the top-left part of the page, to navigate around my website!
PinkAppleJam is the online name I use for my various illustration & personal work projects, on display here. I'm available to host comic/cartooning workshops and take on commissions for illustrations, character design etc. Just drop me a line to discuss your project aims.
My work has been published via Letraset, Sheffield's Corporation nightclub, Shout Magazine, the UK Japanese Embassy, Tokyopop, NEO Magazine plus others. I have worked on comics, games, flyers and numerous other art projects; I work remotely from my studio in Cambridge. I host How-To workshops, talks and demonstrations. Please contact me if you are interested in arranging one for your group, school, library or exhibition.
The culture of making comics is very important to me. I've been a fan of Japanese comics and animation for twenty years, and created my own influenced works for just about as long. I have produced a number of comic works, including stories featured in Sweatdrop Studios’ anthologies and I was also one of the winners of the Neo Magazine manga competition. A few years ago I achieved a runner-up position in the 3rd Rising Stars of Manga United Kingdom and Ireland competition. I continue to publish Biomecha, an ongoing manga style comic, which got shortlisted for the 2007 Eagle Awards.
Thanks for looking!
