The Austrian Cartoonist is Nerd, She Loves Ninjas
Anna-Maria Jung is an Austrian cartoonist, nerd (oh yeah!) and illustrator, born in 1984, and most of her art and tee shirt design are mostly inspired by movies, cartoons, comics, ninja(!) and other narrative media — such as Squinjas!, A Day in the Life and, Pop Culture Clash. She earn most of its from Threadless community while setting up her RedBubble tee store as well.
At the age of 18 she published her first graphic novel “Urbanity” in Austria and since then she has produced various comics and illustrations for comic anthologies in Germany and Austria, published two of her own comics and worked on four animated shorts, one of them in Scotland and one in New York City in cooperation with independent animator Bill Plympton.
In 2009 she received the Fulbright scholarship and started studying a Master program in Illustration at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York and graduated in 2011.
She also won the Next Comic competition in Linz for professionals. She is now working as a freelance illustrator for various companies, such as a children’s book and doing her graphic novel collaboration project with Rebekie Bennington and Daniel Scribner, The Pepper Chronicles — while updating her blog and tumblr with her inspiring artworks and daily stories. It’s a horror-comedy-crime drama set in a fantasy world called Oestrich.
