Mariel Cartwright.

Mariel "Kinuko" Cartwright is an artist and animator. She has worked as an illustrator on Shantae: Risky's Revenge and is set to work as an animator on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.


Mariel Cartwright grew up surrounded by animation and games, and felt a natural inclination to it, but it wasn't before high school that she decided she wanted to be an animator, as she had before focused more on comics.[1] She studied from 2005 to 2009 in character animation at the California Institute of the Arts, and graduated with a bachelor of fine arts.[2]


At CalArts' job fair, Mariel Cartwright put out some of her arts and was contacted by Matt Bozon and Adam Tierney of WayForward Technologies. She first landed a job on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories thanks to Tomm Hulett of Konami.[1] She has since worked on several titles, both for WayForward and for others (notably on Skullgirls and Indivisible as a lead animator, and also art director on the latter).[3] For WayForward, she has notably worked on Shantae: Risky's Revenge as an illustrator and is expected to return to the franchise as an animator on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.[1]


Mariel Cartwright claims she grew up surrounded by animation and games. Her favourite video game is Final Fantasy VII.[1]
