Painapple Studio is a two-man art team with a big imagination and a small attention span. We love telling stories in any form. Our current running series include fantasy comic Ties That Bind, and murder mystery light novel, Keitantei.

Ayu Sakata

Ayu Sakata - Writing, coloring

Once upon a time, Ayu was born. When she was seven years old, she decided that writing was boring and unfun, and she swore she'd never become a writer. That promise really didn't work out. These days, her idea of a good time is hanging out in the library. Her favorite genres are mystery and fantasy, and she thinks comics are pretty swell. She also likes tea, bento, and baking. When she's not writing for Painapple Studio, she's writing for visual novel group sakevisual. You can follow her exploits on twitter at @soymilkpudding.

Micah Solusod

Micah Solusod - Art, character design

Micah got as far as writing "Micah is..." for his profile before giving up. In his defense, the statement is at least accurate. He also never claimed to be a writer. Micah was born and raised in Hawaii where he spent most of his time drawing and not paying attention in class (mostly because he was drawing). When he's not drawing, he's reading manga, cooking, or tending to his reasonably sized not at all too large collection of Transformers. To see more of his hijinks, follow him on twitter at @maioceaneyes.
