Mikiko is a German-Japanese artist currently living in London, UK. She creates fun comics about her daily life with her adorable cat, named Emi, who is probably her “favorite thing in the world”.
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,” she told Bored Panda. “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.”
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.”
