Graphic Novel Prize

Ken Lamug is one of our KidLit GN leaders and is giving away a copy of his upcoming graphic novel, Mischief and Mayhem. The winner will be selected from the pool of people pitching on the website (only USA addresses) and the winner will be announced shortly after .

Ken Lamug is an author-illustrator who has created award-winning picture books and graphic novels. Growing up in the Philippines, Ken loved making up stories and drawing on leftover scraps of paper from photocopy machines. The grown-ups begged him to stop, but he just kept doodling anyway. He wasn’t the best artist, but that didn’t stop him from trying.

After his entire family moved to the U.S. Ken stopped making stories and had to get a real job *GASP*. He worked at a taco shop, computer tech-support company, stork lawn-sign installer and even as a paparazzi. It was about ten years ago when he re-learned how to draw so he could finally fulfill his dreams of creating stories and writing books.

Ken currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada where he is a professional dabbler and has tried everything from beekeeping, filmmaking, 3d printing, photography, coding and race car driving. 

He has won many awards for his books and his most proudest was when “Petro and the Flea King” was selected by the Nevada Humanities for the 2020 Library of Congress National Book Festival. 

But he’s even more excited about Mischief and Mayhem and hopes that you too will enjoy his latest graphic novel.

When Ken is not creating in his secret lab, he’s usually cooking, walking the dogs or untangling cables.
