Why did Michael start drawing manga?
One day, some Japanese students visited Haida Gwaii, B.C.
They told Michael that his art looked like
Japanese comic books.
These books are called “manga”.
Soon after, Michael started to retell old stories.
He mixes traditional Haida art
and new Japanese animation.
Michael’s books have won many awards.
Michael does other art, too.
He works with metal and wood.
His exhibits are in Canada and all over the world.
