Svetlana has drawn for how-to-draw-manga books, RPG manuals, toy designs, animation, book covers and online comics.
She claims to be an accomplished flake with no attention span and bios are challenging to write!
‘Dawing comics is just something I always did, it was a compulsion. In my family we used to keep a log of notes to each other—little messages about the dog needing to be walked, what needed to be bought at the store, what was in the fridge for dinner, etc. They were in this notebook and I’d draw little comic interpretations of the notes, sometimes even with dialogue. I think we still have that thing somewhere!’ http://www.svetlania.com/comics.shtml

Death Note (デスノート Desu Nōto) is a Japanese manga series created by writer Tsugumi Ohba and illustrator Takeshi Obata. The series centers around a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone by writing the victim’s name and picturing his face. The plot follows his attempt to create and lead a world cleansed of evil using the book, and the complex conflict between himself and those assailing him that results.
