Audra Furuichi is a comic creator and illustrator hailing from sunny Honolulu, Hawaii.

Although Audra has drawn for most of her life, she officially began her career in 1998 as a college cartoonist for the Ka Leo o Hawaii, the University of Hawaii student paper, with Culture SHOCK! After graduating and spending a year in Japan as an English teacher in Kyushu, she returned to work as a colorist for Antarctic Press and Udon Entertainment and a translation editor for the company that eventually became Yen Press.

In 2006, she collaborated with Scott Yoshinaga to launch her first webcomic, nemu*nemu, and a companion monthly series for the the East Oahu Sun from 2008-2011, and a second official spin-off Blue Hawaii for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on rotating Sundays from 2012 to present.

Additionally, Audra has worked as a character designer on Date Nighto's Hustle Cat, Namco Entertainment's Namco High, and Tapiki's Sushi Star.
