    Who am I?

    I‘m Zorika. I‘ve been a visual storyteller all my life.
    I started drawing comics from an early age with a brief
    interruption to get my degrees in graphic-design and 2D animation.
    Originally from rural Baden-Württemberg, Germany, I now
    live and work in the windy suburbs of Leeds, UK.

    What can I do for you?

    You can hire me as a comic artist, wether you are a
    professional comic writer, a beginner or representing
    a publisher. Just specify when you send me your inquiry.
    You can also hire me as character designer and a
    traditional animator.

    What I would love to draw, you ask?

    Emotional storytelling and atmospheric settings are my passion.
    I’m into transgenerational themes, ancestral magic and magical realism.
    Anything taking place outdoors or dealing with myths and folklore is a plus.
    My favourite genres are historical fiction, slice of life, mystery and drama.
    I wouldn’t mind a good adventure or coming of age story.
    And nothing beats a meaningful story that doesn’t take itself to seriously.
    If I love your characters I’ll take on your trashy romance story.
    I’m very comfortable drawing action and fighting scenes as well.

    Some of my all time favourite works include:
    This one Summer (Mariko & Jillian Tamaki), Hilda (Luke Pearson),
    Fullmetal Alchemist (Hiromu Arakawa), Seconds (Bryan Lee O’Malley),
    Stand Still Stay Silent (Minna Sundberg) and Coraline
    (Film adaptation by Studio Laika).

    I’m still discovering my boundaries, so for now I’m open to all inquiries!

    I’m not interested in: sports, steampunk or anything involving
    lots of cars and non-humanoid robots.


    Not quite sure yet? Send any questions or inquiries my way at here.

    or consider hiring me for a shortstory.
    Seriously, it can be a one-pager!
