Michael Angelo Go is a Filipino-Born American Illustrator and Writer from Glendora, California. As a child, Michael adored all things cartoons, watching Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and the Disney Channel throughout his entire childhood. 

Although he preferred to pursue a career in the animation industry, Michael graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture in 2020, but quickly returned to his passion for art. He enjoys illustrating people of different shapes and sizes, experimenting with different types of color palettes, and finding new ways to introduce the world to Filipino culture.


Michael hopes to inspire a new generation of readers through his illustrations to provide powerful, emotional, and thought-provoking imagery in the imaginations of youth.
