ABOUT TANJA WOOTEN
Tanja Wooten is an illustrator, comic book artist, product concept artist (toys and holiday) and writer currently residing in Arkansas. Her illustration and writing interests include middle grade to YA, as well as sci-fi and fantasy comic books and graphic novels. She has a BFA from the University of North Texas and an AAA from the Art Institute of Dallas.
Recent projects include art for the 2013 Harvey Award nominated comic anthology, “Womanthology: Space” (IDW), an all ages Gothic comic collaboration, illustrations for a MG sci-fi book, and a sci-fi comic mini-series adaptation. She states, “I’ve had the opportunity to meet many different people from all walks of life because I grew up as an Air Force Brat, and then later traveled as an internet and software consultant/UI designer for my job — about 11 countries and 26 North American states! Those experiences have given me a great appreciation and creative interest in different cultures and unique stories that come from all over the world.”
