About the artist

Hello! I’m Kira Okamoto, a 2D illustrator who likes to try to capture cinematic moments in character illustration. I’m currently based in Seattle, WA.

My childhood dream was to be a comic book artist, but fear and financial hardship kept me from attending art school and pursuing a career in art. Instead, I studied Japanese language and translation and graduated with my B.A. in Japanese Language and Linguistics from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Upon graduating, I realized I've only got one life to live and I’d like to spend mine making art!

I dream of one day doing variant covers for my favorite comic titles.

I also accept personal commissions. If you’d like me to draw your cover or one of your characters, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
