Junko Mizuno was born in 1973 in Tokyo, Japan.
Her works blend the grotesque and cute together into a macabre collaboration that can be addictive to the viewer. Junko's graphic novels are based on old fables such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Princess Mermaid (The Little Mermaid). Currently she is working on more stories, illustrations, and designs for her products.
