Our Authors


Chicken Mom, Painter, Tarot Card Extraordinaire, and Illustrator

Zenko is a self-taught painter and manga artist based in Tennessee who started as a painter. She started the transition to different mediums when she discovered that the artwork wanted to tell a story and noticed that audiences liked having the context that comes with that story. She started self-publishing Saros in 2017 and taking the books to conventions. After 2020, Zenko and Lotti began working on Scatheless, her first collaboration with a writer. Outside of manga, she has made several tarot decks and lives with 8 mischievous chickens.
