Comic artist José María del Barrio Ken Niimura (Ken, for short) is based in Tokyo, Japan but is originally from Spain. As well as illustrating numerous comics, he has taught comic and manga courses at the University of Salamanca. The work that Mr. Niimura is most famous for is his Eisner nominated limited series I Kill Giants, written by Joe Kelly. It is a stand out comic and a must read. Mr. Niimura’s style is loose and packed with energy, but somehow he always retains clear, thin lines. You can see more of his work on his blog.
