Hi, I'm Tsunami Hee Ja,
an Adelaide based artist and illustrator specialising in manga and anime style artwork.
Examples of my art can be viewed in the portfolio section below, or for more recent updates, please follow my social media accounts.
I'm currently writing and illustrating an autobiographical "slice-of-life" web comic which I post weekly to my blog. Along with the occasional event update, there are journal discussions about art, pets, and whatever else is chasing through my restless brain at the time.
Yes, I teach workshops!
Libraries, schools, and event organisers are welcome to contact me about working as a contractor at their venue or function. I have all the necessary clearances and plenty of experience sharing my drawing techniques with children and adults of all ages.
TWYING BUT CWYING
Take a sneak peak into the mind of an anxiety-riddled freelance illustrator as Tsunami shares happy memories, emotional baggage, and insights into the life of a neurotic art bunny who is forever "twying, but cwying".

The drawing of this high school romance manga commenced in 2008 and was completed in 2013, after which it was stored in a cupboard and ignored for nearly a decade. I've recently retrieved it and am finally sharing it - *cringe* - along with a hefty disclaimer!
