Name Mike Mitchell’s Tumblr of Amazing Things
Location Los Angeles
First post August 2009
Freelance illustrator Mike Mitchell is perhaps best known for his “I’m with Coco” poster, but it’s his take on the universal “Viking riding a unicorn in space with lightning-emitting AK-47” concept that truly resonates with us. With a focus on pop culture and the utterly ridiculous, Mike posts his original works, the works of his friends and influences, and the things that make him laugh. He blew up the internet last week after receiving a thank-you note from comedian Zach Galifianakis for creating a splendid portrait. Mike lives in LA with his wife, Lauren, and various pets named Auggie, Belly, Emo, and Peeka.

Name Kyoko Has a Blog
First post March 2009
Kyoko Escamilla is a photographer, crafter, and apple farmer born and raised in Nagasaki, Japan. From an early age, she’s been passionate about comics and superheroes. Thanks to them, she learned english, heroism, and the fact that not everyone can pull off the cape look. “Superheroes were my first set of friends,” she says. Every weekend, she sells her knitted hats, original photos, and apples at the local farmer’s market. Kyoko has dogs named Bo, Rufio, Tink, Lux, Mowgli, and Theodore Bear. She can juggle, enjoys magic, and is better at Call of Duty: Black Ops than you are.
