Hi there!

Hi! I’m Mike Kloran. 

I make all the images, worksheets, and posts you see here. Although I’m from Brooklyn, New York, I now live and work in Tokyo, Japan where I teach, work out, raise my son, and desperately try to keep up with the bills. 

My English Images is a way for me to share my creativity with students and teachers all over the world. It’s a way for me to get feedback and improve my teaching materials. Most importantly, it’s a way for me to give something back to all the great people who have helped me through the years. 

About Me

I love running  events like half marathons and cross country races. For me, the absolute best is the obstacle course race. I’ve run a number of Spartan races and can’t wait to run  a lot more. 

My greatest accomplishment is my son. He’s the coolest kid I’ve ever met and if you’ve been to shops in Japan, his picture was probably smiling at you. 

About the Images

Yes. I typically make illustrations for my own projects however I do sometimes make images for clients. To do this, I follow a simple process, listen to your ideas, sketch them out for your approval, ink and color them, and then deliver them. 


Traditionally, I do a pencil sketch, then add ink. Finally, I add color. But these days, I’m playing around with an iPad pro and an Apple pencil. 

Check it out in some of these books?

That depends on the image. Feel free to get in touch. It never hurts to ask. You might have a project I’d be really interested in helping you with. 

That depends on the project. Some projects require a simple, single image, and others are more time consuming with lots of details and special information. 

Generally speaking, a single quarter page image costs about a hundred dollars.
