About Misako Rocks!

Misako Rocks! is a Brooklyn-based manga artist. Her first break came when The Onion decided to use her illustrations for their "Savage Love" column. Shortly afterward, in 2007, Misako self-published her autobiographical comic, Rock and Roll Love, which was featured on the New York Public Library's Best Books for Teens List. Outside of the U.S., she has published several books in Japan, including How to Learn English with Misako's Method. She teaches manga drawing classes at numerous middle schools in New York City, as well as at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Cherry Blossom Festival.
