how it all began:
we are a designer duo based in east london with roots in asia and europe
from a tender age we have been big fans of manga, anime cartoons and comics.
ken draws miriam a comic every evening (since over 10 years and ongoing) so one day she asked him to illustrated all their favourite cartoon, manga, anime and comic heroes.
the operation took several months as the list seemed to never end.
when he was finally done, the artwork counted over 200 characters and turned out to be quite cool.
we asked a local screen printer to hand pull us our first cartoonist manifesto tees.
that was the birth of westost! a few months later we had designed a second tee (wonderful villains) and decided to book our first stall at mcm london comic con.
we've since set up a small home studio, have learned how to screen print, have been running stalls at different conventions and markets and have met a lot of amazing people on the way!
