Gina is a freelance illustrator and art educator under the name Studio Ginart. She has taught for a large part of her career and recently switched to teaching art and making illustrations fulltime. In addition, she paints miniatures on commission. All of this is done from the large and bright studio in her home in Pijnacker. So far, she has worked for the comic Jak & Bil (obviously), Aniway magazine, Horned Toad Games,, and the many students she’s had the privilege to teach.

Gina’s always been a comic fan. From Japanese manga to American comics to European bandes dessinées and everything in between. And, of course, drawing the characters from these comics. So when the opportunity arose to work for Jak & Bil I immediately jumped to the chance. And was absolutely thrilled to be added to the team. What a dream, to have read all these comics, never imagining I’d actually contribute to one, and now, here we are!
