The Arts

Gavin Aung Than is a New York Times bestselling cartoonist.

After working in the corporate graphic design industry for 8 years he quit his unfulfilling job and sold his house to follow his true passion: drawing cartoons. His work includes Zen Pencils, a webcomic which adapts inspirational quotes into comics that was named one of PCMag’s best 100 websites of 2013, and Super Sidekicks, a middle grade graphic novel series.

Baa Baa Black Belt is his debut picture book and combines Gavin’s two lifelong obsessions of martial arts and drawing silly pictures.
