In addition to having a pretty cool name, he's also got some serious talent. Born in San Francisco and raised in Thailand, he's the mind behind Hyperbooster Studio, where he combines his love for manga-style artwork with a passion for brushstrokes and calligraphy. He is a busy man, doing as many as four conventions a month. In 2009 he created his own convention: Hyper-Con, an Anime, Video Game & Pop Culture Convention in the San Mateo, Calif. area.
We met him at Emerald City Comicon where he did commissions for myself, our guy Scott and a couple bazillion other people. His signature style for commissions at conventions is a "while-you-wait," speed demon flash of pencils, pens, and even white-out. The result is layered, almost three-dimensional and a shit-ton of fun to watch.
