Janet K Lee made her first foray into illustration in 2010 by co-creating “Return of the Dapper Men” with writer Jim McCann which garnered a record-setting five Eisner nominations, winning the award for Best New Graphic Album. 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. The sequel to “Return of the Dapper Men” is in the works. “Sea Sirens”, a fantastic adventure with a girl and her surfing cat who visit the mermaid kingdom, is coming Summer 2019 from Viking.
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 mischievious cats.
