Mina Ikemoto Ghosh

Mina Ikemoto Ghosh is a British-Japanese writer and illustrator. Mina’s style incorporates brush pen and bold, dark, dynamic linework, drawing on the influences of the manga she grew up with, Japanese calligraphy, and the fine pen lines she saw in illustrated English books. She admires Chris Riddell and Yoshitaka Amano, and writes stories inspired by natural sciences, Showa-era detective fiction and Japanese classical literature.

Trial and error over a couple of million words’ worth of manuscripts has taught her enough about narrative to know that she’s got many, many miles to go. She is currently working on the second draft of an illustrated YA fiction novel.

I’ve learnt a great deal on Pathways about myself and my limits. I’ve learnt that my kindness is probably to draw the dark when it’s there, honestly, rather than hide it under rainbows.
