Kate Niemczyk is a huge fan of video games and before starting her career in comics she used to work on illustrated animations for titles like ESCAPE DEAD ISLAND, MIGHT AND MAGIC HEROES VII, and THE WITCHER 3: WILD HUNT, working along with her boyfriend and his brother in their animation studio, Division48.
In 2015 she was convinced to show her portfolio to Marvel’s talent hunter C.B. Cebulski, when he came to Poland as a guest of the International Comic Festival in Łódź, and in March 2016 she was assigned the regular artist position for the new MOCKINGBIRD series, written by Chelsea Cain and colored by Rachelle Rosenberg. The eighth and final issue of the series came out in October.
Currently, she is drawing interior art for Valiant’s FAITH #9, which is coming out in March, and already has other really exciting projects which are yet be announced, from Marvel and other publishers.
In her free time, Kate draws comic strips about her favorite video games (mostly MASS EFFECT) that she posts on her tumblr blog.
