Mikiko is a German-Japanese artist who lives in London, UK. She creates fun comics about her daily life with her boyfriend and cat named Emi, who is probably her “favorite thing in the world”. It doesn’t sound very exciting at first, but this artist demonstrates how it is the little things in life that should matter. All of us should cherish moments like these that we usually take for granted.
While growing up, Mikiko moved around a lot. “I was born in Tokyo and grew up in Hong Kong, Germany, Japan, and Belgium, so manga (Japanese comics) were a way for me to connect to home. I always drew, but at age 12 I read my first Shonen Jump magazine (action adventure!) and decided, that’s what I wanted to do as a job.”
Because of her bubbly and cheerful personality, the artist finds inspiration for her comics everywhere. “Mainly people, music, and life in general. Other artists too of course! People are so creative and funny, it’s inspiring.”
