Anne Koyama is my publisher and my friend. If you’ve been lucky enough to run into her, you know how awesome she is, or are learning. And if not, I encourage you to hunt her down. Or check out any of the wide WIDE array of artists she publishes at Koyama Press. I suspect that humble Anne would prefer this most of all.
I should say that this character design is swiped from Aaron Leighton, who originally designed the Koyama “Kickass Annie” logo. I also folded in a healthy dose of Michael Deforge, although admittedly a pidgin version of his awesome “small cartoon” style.
