About Me

My name is Katie O’Neill, I am a self-taught writer and illustrator based in New Zealand. My first book, Princess Princess Ever After was released by Oni Press in September 2016, and my second, The Tea Dragon Society, will be out on October 2017 and can currently be read as a webcomic.

I am available for illustration work across a range of mediums including books, cards, and videogames.

Since people are often curious, my work is done digitally in Adobe Photoshop and with a simple Wacom Intuos tablet. I highly recommend Kyle T. Webster’s excellent digital brush sets. I do studies and planning/brainstorming by hand, in a small Muji notebook.

Outside of work I love tea and food, plants, transitional seasons, reading, walking and listening to podcasts.
