“Part of what makes me love my job so much is how varied it can be, and I tend to switch between working as an artist-for-hire and writing my own stories depending on the job at hand.” – Emma Vieceli
From self-publishing to some of the biggest book publishers in the world, Emma loves telling stories with pictures. Currently the artist for Olivia Twist (Dark Horse) and the writer for Life is Strange (Titan comics), her recent work includes: Alex Rider (Walker books), The Adventures of Supergirl (DC comics), Doctor Who (Titan comics), Jem & the holograms (IDW) the New York Times-bestselling Vampire Academy graphic novel series (PenguinRandomHouse), Back to the Future (IDW), Avalon Chronicles (Oni Press) and the critically acclaimed independent web series, BREAKS with co-creator Malin Ryden (SoaringPenguin).
Alongside comics, she worked on the A&E television series, Bates Motel, providing the sketchbook found by Norman Bates, and is currently working as an artist with Tinyrebel on their Doctor Who Infinity games.
