My name is Ellen and I'm a writer, illustrator and Manga-Artist from Germany and was born in March.

I spend most of my time drawing and illustrating Mangas and other artworks. Since I can hold a pen, I draw different stories and write my own books.

 

I started in 2003 with a german internet community named Animexx to publish my own things. From that time on my passion for Anime and Manga went sky high.

Due to personal stuff I was forced to lay down the pen for a couple of years until I joined Tumblr in 2011.

 

In that time I loved to draw Yu-Gi-Oh! and shared my own doujinshis. The community around tumblr was so supportive that I managed to publish one of the doujinshis (self-publishing) and recieved a lot of commissions.
