How to Draw the Bots

Might Could Team Photo, Christine Nishiyama

Hi! I’m Christine Nishiyama, an illustrator and writer currently living in Boone, NC.

I create stories, books, and comics that blend fiction and nonfiction. I love drawing in my sketchbook and writing about life.

I also help self-taught artists develop an artistic mindset and make their own books!
