Jon J. Murakami
Jon J. Murakami is an enterprising freelance artist whose work is gaining recognition and a following in the general public. He is perhaps best known for his humorous line of Local Kine greeting cards, produced and distributed by Maile Way Products. In addition to his greeting cards, Murakami is assisting retired University of Hawaii professor Peter Coraggio on his series, The Art of the Piano Performance in Illustrated Form, which is published in Japan, Korea, and the United States. These books are instructional guides, in the form of comic books, based on Coraggio's teachings of how to play the piano. Murakami also designs T-shirts and logos; does free-lance illustrations, cartoons, and clip art; creates original comic book art; and draws comic strips for various newsletters & local

newspapers including the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and the Hawaii Herald. He is an active member with Cartoonists Across America & the World, founded by renowned artist, Phil Yeh. Yeh and Murakami are also producing a children's storybook called The Winged Tiger and the Dragons of Hawaii. Murakami was born and raised on Oahu, Hawaii. He graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. As a UHM student, he drew The University of Diverse City, a daily comic strip for Ka Leo O Hawaii, the campus newspaper.
