Cleverly disguised as marketing maven for a major metropolitan licensing agency (spotlightlicensing.com) by day, Wong transforms into a dedicated comics creator, connoisseur, and champion upon returning to his writing/drawing table in Brooklyn each night.
Wong is a comics creator/writer/artist known primarily for his artisanal ORIGAMI COMICS, comics printed and presented in folded forms rather than as traditional books or magazines. His origami comics include PANDORA’S BOX, SCHRODINGER’S CAT, FLEXAGON!, SAM ISO: 2d4, UNSUNG and TAMATEBAKO. Ken is also the creator/publisher of CYRANO DeBERGERAC’S BALLADE and MAP TO WORLD’S END, comics which also marry content to the physical form.
Ken’s other work in comics includes a story written for SECRET IDENTITIES, the Asian American Superhero Anthology (The New Press, 2009) and an essay on the significance of the word ‘panache’ written for the PaperCutz edition of CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED: CYRANO DE BERGERAC (Papercutz, 2010).
For those in the comics community (and especially NYC’s comics art scene), Ken Wong may also be familiar from years of volunteer work at MoCCA, the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, where he served over the years as Chief Operating Officer (2003-05), Art Festival Co-Director (2004 & 2005), President (2005-07), and Guest Curator (Stan Lee: A Retrospective, 2007).
