Born in Seoul, South Korea, Michael Cho immigrated to Canada at the tender age of 6 years old. There, he continued his lifelong practice of drawing on whatever surface he could find.  A graduate of the Ontario College of Art (before it added the ‘and Design’ part), Michael now divides his time between freelancing on illustration assignments and drawing comics (preferably ones he writes himself). He’s been the recipient of a couple of Canadian National Magazine Award nominations, finally winning a Silver in 2007.  Michael currently lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, having recently moved into a nice house with his lovely wife and daughter.  His latest book, Back Alleys and Urban Landscapes, is a collection of paintings and drawings of neighbhourhoods in Toronto amassed over a 5 year period.
