About the artist

Kono San hails from Saitama Prefecture. He grew up drawing but tried a career, at first, as a computer programmer. Pretty soon he found his art income outpacing his day job. So he gave up the code and never looked back. His gorgeous characters are in high demand and have appeared in manga magazines and product advertisements, as well as several characters in Sega Video Games. Kono also created a manga titled Ishida and Asakura that was well received and was even recreated as an animated short film.
