Namie-kun is a digital artist from Perth, Australia, who creates bright, emotive manga paintings with digital art programs. Using a pen tablet and Photoshop software, Namie-kun creates fun action art based on both her own manga characters and characters found in famous anime cartoons like Pokemon. The wide-eyed, stylized characters are super cute, inspiring feelings of joy in the viewer. Unlike many artists, Namie-kun doesn’t create art with the intention of carrying a message to the world. Instead, Namie-kun’s art exists simply to be enjoyed by all who see it.
Namie-kun’s advice to other artists is, “Draw what you like! If people like what you draw, that’s a bonus.” Visit Namie-kun on Deviantart for more fun, colorful manga paintings. You can also buy a variety of prints of Namie-kun’s art through the site.
