About the Artist

Jan Duursema is well known for her artwork which appears in numerous comic book series including Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars Comics, and Marvel Comics. Some of her more famous characters include The Incredible Hulk, Spider Man, Wolverine, X-Factor as well as in DC Comics’ Hawkman, Wonderwoman and others. She was the creator of Denin and Vila from Naldar, the Twi'lek Jedi Aayla Secura and the Kiffar Jedi Quinlan Vos. She often works with John Ostrander.

In an interview with Silver Bullet Comic Books Interviewer, Mike Jozic, Jan said,

“One of my favorite things is looking for background flora and fauna I can put into the panels. Throwaway stuff, I suppose, as it isn't necessary to include it to tell the story - but I think it adds to the overall texture and imparts a visual richness to the places being shown. As with other work I've done - whether it was X-Men, Hawkman or AD&D, I throw my creative energies totally into the lives of the characters and try to understand what motivates them - how they walk, gesture - when they smile - what makes them angry or sad. I try to give each character their own visual personality and identity in the way they move and react. When I'm done with a story, I want to feel like I made these characters come alive for the reader.”

CSLP is very pleased to have Jan Duursema for this year’s Metamorphosis teen summer reading theme. Jan lives in Mt. Freedom, New Jersey and is married to artist Tom Mandrake, both of whom did the art for Marvel Star Wars 92: The Dream.
