Lildragon (Wanda Korosec), born in 1986, has spent her childhood living in Genk en is now living in Leuven. Although she has studied the classical art forms (Bachelor in Plastic Arts, Master in 2008?), she’s always had a passion for drawing manga. Due to her classical training she also masters different other art skills: creating logos and illustrations, portraying and painting. Recently she made an illustration for a poem in “Knuffel”, a children’s magazine.

Through her studies Wanda became fascinated by the artistic movements of surrealism and symbolism, and her fantasy style of manga drawing is strongly influenced by these movements. Especially symbolism is very important in works such as “Lifetrees”, a personnel project, when trying to avoid the typical clichés and creating an own, powerful manga style.

Now she’s working on an art book on the “Lifetrees”, linked to a story in progress, “Black Lotus”. Wanda hopes to be able to spend some more time on this project in the near future.
