Indonesian artist, ANZU decided to become a manga artist in 1996, yet it wasn't until 2002 when she graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Visual Communication Design from the local Petra Christian University. Immediately she began working as a Graphic Designer, and a year later returned to her dram of becoming a manga artist. Her work was quickly recognised, and in February 2004 she was included in 'Comic Asia 2004: Women In Comic Asia' (Asia Joryu Manga No Sekia 2004
) which was held in Tokyo, Japan.
Her style suits the Shoujo genre of manga, with handsome teenaged men and cute fashionable girls.
Her working name 'ANZU' is a Japanese girl's name ( 杏子, あんず) meaning Apricot.
ANZU worked with Randomhouse Inc on The Reformed, which concluded in Spring 2008. She has created her own web comics known as Thirst of Angels
. Written by HABE & drawn by ANZU, Thirst of Angels is a gothic-lolita romance with a mortal girl who is attracted by an enigmatic vampiric man.
Since then ANZU has begun working with Del Rey
to produce a new manga based on the Marvel Publishing X-Men
characters known as X-Men: Misfits
ANZU has a team of assistants; Liwa, Nico, UV & Yuu-An. They all work tirelessly through to the early hours of the morning to meet their deadlines. She has become a fan of Dave Roman
& Raina Telgemeier
through reading their scripts in order to draw them.
