About me

Hi, I’m Letty Wilson.

I’m an artist and writer from Scotland, just finished an MLitt in Comics Studies at Dundee selfie-bluehair-100dpiUniversity.

I like making art, particularly comics, illustration and prose fiction. My work tends to focus on surreal and fantastic ideas and imagery, often with zoological inspiration; I’m particularly interested in ideas of predation and metamorphosis.

I love collaborating with others, or working to a brief, and regularly draw character-art commissions.

I have conversed with owls, and know their secrets.

Skills:

  • drawing, specialising in inks.
  • comic art; pencilling, inking, colouring and lettering.
  • writing for comics, prose, poetry and non-fiction; gained a BA (1st class, hons) in English and Creative Writing at Aberystwyth university in 2012.
  • proficient in Photoshop CS6, and general digital image creation and manipulation.

Letty has a real gift for characterization, for manifesting form and gesture, for lending her figures tangible physical and psychological weight; as a professional, working with others, Letty always impressed in her ability to incorporate outside direction, to offer various drafted alternatives, and to meet deadlines, accommodating constraints and excelling expectations.
