This is what I looked like in Berlin, Germany. Age 5.

This is what I looked like in Berlin, Germany. Age 5.

My name is Mike Malbrough and I make books for kids. 

Before my career as a writer-illustrator, I was a freelance graphic designer, comic book artist, performer and teacher with a career spanning two decades. I am the director of ORNG Ink, an after-school studio for young artists, and have received several awards and honors for my work in the community with children and teens.

I live in Orange, NJ with my wife, two adventurous kids, and a cat named Agnes that hates me. 

 

An award!

Complete disdain.
