Enter the world of artist, Sandra Chang-Adair. Sandra is an erotic art and fantasy illustrator. She is a self-taught artist that is passionate about delineating the beauty of the human form. Her characters are depicted as fairies, mermaids, knights, heroines and mythical characters in the steampunk genre. She loves interjecting subtle humor in her vignettes (often sneaking in her beloved dogs). Her favorite medium is digital: Corel Painter, Manga Studio Pro and Photoshop.
Sandra began in comic books. She has been published in Hustler, Heavy Metal, Fantagraphics Books/Eros Comix and Inside Kung-Fu. She has written tutorials for Digital Art/Fantasy Art, Advanced Photoshop and Corel Painter Magazines. Her 48-page art book, Steampunk Rising: The Art of Sandra Chang-Adair, published by SQP Publications is available now. She is currently working on her online comic, Gothic Geisha. A futuristic, sci-fi adventure about rebels fighting a dysotopian Authoritative Government. Go to gothicgeisha.com to view the first two issues online of her series.

She has a second degree blackbelt in Budoshin Ju Jitsu, a blacksash in Northern Eagle Claw, certificates in Traditional Kung Fu and Traditional Kung Fu Weapons at Beijing Kung-Fu and Tai-Chi Academy. She is currently studying at Shaolin Taichi Cultural Center in Henderson with a 33rd generation Shaolin Monk. In 2015, Sandra began taking Epeé lessons at Red Rock Fencing Center in Las Vegas.
