Introduction J.S. 'Jin' Choi is a freelance illustrator working in fantasy/sci-fi, pin-up, comics, and other sequential based art. She has been in exhibitions such as Tata Gala and Frazetta Tribute Gallery, magazines such as ImagineFX, and art annuals such as Spectrum. Jin received a BFA at Ringling College of Art and Design as a illustration major with a focus in visual development. She also received an MFA at Syracuse University as a illustration major under the Visual and Performing Art department. Presently, Jin works as a full time freelance illustrator. On a geeky side note, the illustrator likes most fantasy and sci-fi in any field be it books, video games, table top games, comics, music, movies, animation, tv shows, etc. She is also a weapon lover and is into martial art. If time permits, Jin likes reading philosophical books and proverbs from any other country and era. She also digs fairy tales, mythologies, legends, and stories of historical hauntings. Lastly, Jin is a nick name whore. Will give people titles regardless if desired, but only to those she cares about and finds endearing- Or to mess with them. Mwa ha ha ha!
