Zeea’s coloring career started under the tutelage of her artist/painter father Neal Adams and colorist mother Cory Adams. She started coloring, naturally, on Continuity Comics with the occasional stint at Valiant and Red Line Comics. She worked both using watercolors and, later, Photoshop. Zeea also colored the Betty Boop Landmark calendars from 1996-2000 (so fun!). When things went digital, Neal and Zeea pioneered advertising animatics, techniques that years later would be adapted for motion comics. Always having the most fun with special effects and explosions, she joined in to work on the last 3 episodes of The Astonishing X-Men: Gifted motion comic. Zeea now finds the greatest pleasure in returning to her coloring roots.
