About The BugMangaka

Hello! My name is Kyle/Kyla Robateau (He/They), and I am currently residing in Chicago, Illinois. Many know me as "Bug" within various online spaces. I'm a comic artist, merchandise creator, illustrator, and animator with a passion for exploring the natural world, queerness, oppression, and the complexities of relationships throughout my work. I create autobiographical works, fan content, and am the creator of the original comic series "Mae and the Kingdoms of Seasons." I also run the small business "The BugMangaka," which is where I sell products such as my printed comics, stickers, button pins, and more.

Art Education:

I am currently in my third year studying comic illustration at SAIC (School of the Art Institute of Chicago).

I have considerable experience working with applications such as Clip Studio Paint EX, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Adobe After Effects.

I am familiar with the printing and binding process for book arts.
