Shannon Townsend

Shannon has been drawing almost her entire life, but at the age of 16 she discovered Anime, and she’s never been the same since. Self taught in the art style of Anime and Manga, Shannon has worked on numerous freelance projects over the years for everything from board games to websites and children’s books. She now spends her time working on Otaku no Yen and planning Studio ONY’s upcoming comic projects with her husband and writer Richard. When she isn’t drawing, she’s a belly dance instructor and poi spinner.
