Lizzie Heath is an Illustrator and Manga Artist living in London. She creates whimsical comics inspired by her daily life, friends, and skateboarding. She began skateboarding in 2016, and it wasn’t long until the colorful world of skateboarding started to inspire ideas for her characters and stories. Her life-long interest in art and newfound love of skateboarding naturally and quickly merged.
Alongside her day-job, Lizzie self-publishes her own comics and takes on commissions by skate brands for comics, illustration and animation work. She has self-published three comic books, Sights of Japan, Welcome to Palestine and Riding with Legends. She has designed two skateboard graphics for British skateboard company Lovenskate, has had two comic features in European skateboard magazine Skateism, and currently has a regular feature called Comics Corner in Vague Skate Mag, a bimonthly British skateboard magazine.
Lizzie is currently working on her next self-published book, Lucy’s Notes on Life, Love and Skateboarding. It will be her first serialised manga and it will be a good challenge towards her skills as a writer and manga artist. In the meantime, Lizzie continues with her Comic Corners feature in Vague Skate Mag as well as other commissions.
These works are a collection of illustration and comics that I have created over the last three years. They are a mixture of personal and commissioned pieces. Some of the illustrations were created just for fun, including and a few self-portraits. Often, my work is inspired by my real-life adventures and mishaps. I am hugely inspired by 80/90’s Japanese manga and anime. Each artwork is hand drawn using pencil, outlined with pen & ink, and then colored digitally in Photoshop.
