Annie Wu, who earned her BFA in illustration in 2010, was listed as a 2011 Creator to Watch by newsarama.com in its 11 for ’11: Things To Watch in the New Year series. Wu was recognized by the leading comics news outlet for her work on a motion comics serial with Elle magazine and TRESemmé called Dirty Little Secret, which followed an aspiring hair stylist as she dealt with professional and personal misadventures. Wu began the project while at MICA, designing and illustrating characters in each episode of the animated web series/motion comic hybrid.
Wu had wrapped up illustrations for a short story in Vertigo’s penultimate issue of House of Mystery, which was released in September. In addition to comics, she’s pursuing freelance assignments, with a client list that includes DC Comics, Lacrosse Magazine and Coca-Cola Brazil.
