Janet K Lee made her first foray into illustration in 2010 by co‐creating the Eisner‐winning graphic novel Return of the Dapper Men with writer Jim McCann. Lee went on to illustrate the Marvel Comics adaptations of two of Jane Austen’s novels, “Emma” and “Northanger Abbey” as well as six other books and anthologies. Her subsequent work has received both Harvey and Eisner nominations. Her most recent book, Sea Sirens, is a middle‐grade graphic novel about the fantastic adventures of a girl named Trot and her surfing cat who visit the mermaid kingdom. Lee is currently working on Sky Island, the next Trot and Cap’n Bill adventure, which comes out Summer, 2020.
Janet remains active in her local art community, teaching comics workshops in partnership with her local library. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband, her son, two good dogs, and four very bad cats.
