La Foka #1

May 8, 2017

I have this problem where I have all these ideas and no follow-through, and as the venerable and wise Gary Vaynerchuck says “Ideas are shit.” So rather than buy a URL, lay out said URL, and never post to it, I’ll just post all of my miscellaneous comics here.

La Foka is the story of Simon and Timber and their hilarious misadventures, or lack thereof. It’s called La Foka in honor of my dog Almendra, who is 25 pounds over weight and soon to be on an expensive diet of low calorie kibble. ‘Foca’ in Spanish means seal, and my fat, morbidly obese dog looks like a seal, ergo ‘La Foka.’ Why is ‘foca’ misspelled? Well I’ll tell you. It’s cool to misspell things in Spanish too. The popular thing to do is replace any hard k sound with a k. Easy, yes?

My name is Michael Muranaka and I am a Digital Artist from Southern California. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, and from an early age I had aspirations of being a comic book artist. Some of my favorite comics are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Scud: The Disposable Assassin, and The Darkness, among many others.

I am obsessed with animation, especially the absurd and crudely drawn. I have also been creating music with my computer for nearly 2 decades.
