Stan Sakai

Stan Sakai (Japanese: 坂井 スタン"Sakai Sutan"; born May 25, 1953) is a third-generation Japanese American who became known as an Eisner Award-winning comic book creator.

Born in Kyoto, Japan, Sakai grew up in Hawaii and studied fine arts at the University of Hawaii. He later attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He and his wife, Sharon, presently reside and work in Pasadena.

He began his career by lettering comic books (notably "Groo the Wanderer" by Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier) and became famous with the creation of "Usagi Yojimbo", the epic saga of Miyamoto Usagi, a samurai rabbit living in late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth-century Japan. First published in 1984, the comic continues to this day, with Sakai as the lone author and nearly-sole artist (Tom Luth serves as the main colorist on the series, and Sergio Aragonés has made two small contributions to the series: the story "Broken Ritual" is based on an idea by Aragonés, and he served as a guest inker for the black and white version of the story "Return to Adachi Plain" that is featured in the Volume 11 trade paperback edition of "Usagi Yojimbo"). He also created a futuristic spinoff series "Space Usagi". His favorite movie is "Satomi Hakkenden" (1959).

Other Work

Before Usagi Yojimbo, Sakai wrote and illustrated a comic series entitled "The Adventures of Nilson Groundthumper and Hermy". The characters first appeared in Albedo #1 in 1984.

Sakai wrote and illustrated the story "I'm Not In Springfield Anymore!" for Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror #7 and illustrated the [http://www.usagiyojimbo.com/sakai/otherchars/other2000/other2000_2.jpgback cover] of Treehouse of Horror #6.

Sakai was the artist for the back-up feature in the trade paperback of Stupid, Stupid Rat Tails.
