Lo­ca­tion: US Web: www.mike­manoart.com Em ail: mike@mike­manoart.com media: Sumi-e ink on pa­per, Pho­to­shop Born in Bos­ton, Mas­sachusetts but raised in Bangkok, Thai­land, Michael now works free­lance in Oak­land, Cal­i­for­nia. “I’m in­flu­enced equally by both il­lus­tra­tion and comics, some of the most im­por­tant be­ing Mike Mig­nola’s work as well as the work of Greg Ruth and Ser­gio Toppi. I also look at a lot of turn of the cen­tury pho­tog­ra­phy,” he says.

At­mos­phere and emo­tional tone are very im­por­tant to him as a vis­ual sto­ry­teller, and he loves de­sign­ing with light. “I use sumi-e ink as my pri­mary medium. The im­me­di­ate yet del­i­cate na­ture of ink is so much fun to ex­plore – an end­less well of pos­si­bil­i­ties con­tained in just one small bot­tle.”
