Born in Tokyo, Kitsuneko Nagata has been drawing ever more passionately since her early childhood. She started her career after winning an award in 2013 at the 63rd Tetsuya Chiba* Prize, “amateur manga” category, organized by the pre-publication magazine Morning (Kôdansha), which encouraged her to progress in her art. In 2019, she published her first two-volume series with Shôgakukan, entitled Hikkoshi daimyo sanzenri (“The daimyo who moves to the other side of Japan”) and adapted from the eponymous novel by Akihiro Dobashi. His work is particularly influenced by that of illustrators such as Yoshitarô Isaka and painters such as Harry Clarke, Hikozô Itô or Kinzô Hirose.
* Author particularly known for his boxing manga Ashita no Joe.
