Our Guests Team is happy to announce APRILAPIN as an Artist Guest of Honor for AnimeIowa 2020!
APRILAPIN (pronounced like “april-a-pawn”) is an illustrator and graphic designer from Davenport, Iowa. Growing up, she was heavily influenced by anime and manga such as Sailor Moon, X/1999, Chobits, and Fruits Basket. These influences, along with her interest in horror, video games, fashion, and cosplay, formed the bedrock of her work today. These days, some of her favorites are Revolutionary Girl Utena, Madoka Magica, Oyasumi Punpun, and Mawaru Penguindrum. She loves to create illustrations that evoke a mood, juxtapose the unexpected, and unsettle.
APRILAPIN can usually be found drawing at home, eating chips, petting her cat, sewing cosplay, or on social media at @aprilwithfluff on Twitter or Instagram. You can also visit her on the web at www.aprilapin.com.
