Aloha! My name is Jon J. Murakami and I'm a freelance cartoonist in Hawaii!
• I'm best known for the “Local Kine” greeting cards, which depict humorous occasions & holidays in Hawaii.
• My regular comic strips include “Calabash” with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser , “Generation Gap” with the Hawaii Herald, and “What’s Up Wasa*Bee?” in Wasabi.
• I've also illustrated several Hawaiian children’s picture and board books, including “Geckos Slide & Peek” and self-publishes comic books entitled “Gordon Rider”, “Eda*mame Ninjas”, and “The Ara-Rangers.”
• I often post random drawings & comics online just for fun so people will smile and hopefully laugh and forget about their problems for a little while ^_^
