Artist Research: Michael Cho
Michael Cho is illustrator/cartoonist living and working in Toronto, Canada. He has done cover illustration for the Toronto literary magazine Taddle Creek, the Swedish design agency Karnhuset, and has done inking work for DC comics like Justice League: New Frontier Special. He is currently working on his online web comic, Papercut which is part of the Transmission-X group of web comics organized by Toronto based artists. His strongest influence is Jack Kirby's work. Michael Cho's work stands out to me not only because of his method of inking, but his splicing of reality and cartooning with a duo tone graphic treatment.
