Artist | Student | Varied

I am The Kao, an Illustrator and comic artist. I am the creator of Mondo Mango Comics. This is where I post finished illustration pieces.

I am most active on Twitter, Instagram and Tapas.




Current Residence: IL
Favourite style of art: Anime/Manga
Here are some Youtube animations I did and was not able to upload on deviantart :I

My newest animation as of 11/08/12.

A 2-minute Anime Opening featuring my original characters in A.B.R City.
Directed & Animated By (me) The Kao
Music: "Touhou Hana Kagura" by Yu-Mu
All photos & footage were shot by The Kao (except for one birds eye view of city)
All Characters (me) The Kao 2012

A song animation about Dinosaurs for my Paleontology Class

Lyrics Written and Animated by yours truly, The Kao/ Scruballz
Music: "I Want it That A Way" Backstreet Boys (instrumental)
Sung By Elgin AKA Karitheillustrator

A little Sketchy Animation I did for fun based on a cover song of Lady Gaga's song mixed together by two amazing people Sam and Kurt. This was more like a story board of my friends character and mine interacting. Scru is seen singing and Fuku is playing the guitar as if narrating the story taking place in A.B.R's Cantina. It's about N.Scru (also known as Kai) finding and fighting for his beloved Mousy. So Warning: Mild Boy Love scenes.

This was originally going to be fully animated until I realize the song wasn't great for the story telling. It ended up being a cool opening. You can read about the fight between my two original characters Floyd and Scruballz here:
The story is about the time Floyd finally finds his lost brother Scru in the A.B.R area and undergoes a battle to make Scru finally realize who he is because Scrus an idiot.

An Animation of my two original characters Kiwi and Peanut, cat pets of Scruballz. It's just emphasizing Peanut's love for kiwi, lol i'm so evil.

Hello! Sorry to bother you but I felt like I should tell you that I created some fanart for you because you inspired me a few years back to start drawing little comics and to improve my art. Thanks for unintentionally making my darker days seem brighter with your funny comics. Here is a link to my fanart. Hopefully it will work. Just to let you know this right now that I drew this in a car and I promise to make proper fanart later. Just for now I wanted to show my appreciation though it might seem creepy considering you do not know me. But anyways stay awesome and funny all around amazing as always. I hope you have a fantastic day!

Dude its cool, everyone has their own schedules to go by. Not like this place is a high priority. Either way thanks for those replies, it made my day seeing that you enjoyed the doodle. (after I had a mini heart attack seeing that you replied and favorited it lol) I will probably have a new piece out soon by the next time you come to check this site, I will let you know when I finished it. 

Also seriously keep up the awesome work! your art and comics have not only affected me but also a bunch of my friends really enjoy seeing your art/comics. Nod So sorry if my replies are over top I am just not use to talking to people, even if its behind a screen, so I am going to be an awkward person as per usual. sorry for my ramble have a great day.I think I've fainted. :) (Smile)
