Ursula Vernon's an artist I've been following for about 9 years now, ever since stumbling across her artwork on the vast amateur art gallery site Elfwood. Ursula's long since stepped up from amateur to professional, though some of her art can still be found here in Gallery 1. Her main site has been Metal & Magic, but some of her artwork is adult in nature (she describes it as "PG-13" - basically occasional nudity), and given her move into children's literature, she's setting up a new family-friendly site,

Ursula also writes and illustrates the fantastic (in multiple senses) webcomic Digger, about an anthropomorphic wombat lost far from home. Note that the first few chapters - 286 pages - are currently available for free on the site (check the table of contents page), but to read it all you have to subscribe to Graphic Smash. Sofawolf Press has published three volumes of the series so far, but that only covers up through chapter six, and chapter nine is just starting online.
