Welcome to my site!

I'm Erich Owen, a cartoonist/graphic novelist/character designer living in San Diego!

My first graphic novel series, Mail Order Ninja, which I co-created and illustrated was published by Tokyopop in 2005 & 2006. Tokyopop published two volumes and a run of internationally syndicated newspaper comicstrips of Mail Order Ninja.
Since then, I have illustrated for IDW, Viper Comics, Red 5 Comics, and Bluewater Productions among others. In 2009 I had the opportunity to work with William Shatner illustrating his TekWar Chronicles comic series. I even had lunch with The Shat and his wife to discuss the project. They were wonderful!

Now, 10-ish years later, I am back illustrating Mail Order Ninja.
We currently have a two-book deal with Andrews McMeel Publishing to create a new Mail Order Ninja graphic novel series. I also have another two-book deal with Andrews McMeel to adapt another property which involves ninjas into a graphic novel series, but I can't say what it is yet.
