about Mike Koran


Hi! I’m Mike Kloran.

I’m the guy who makes all the images, worksheets and posts you see here. Hailing from Brooklyn New York, I’m now living in the Tokyo area where I teach, work out, try desperately to keep up with my bills and raise my son.

My English Images is about two things:
– improving my teaching techniques and materials to better my students’ experience
– giving something back to and connecting with a larger community of teachers.

Seriously, I want your feedback. If you see typos or have ideas on how to make it all better, get in touch.

How I Work

How long does it take to make your images?

It depends on the image.

Do you want to help me with a project I can’t pay you for but I think could be a great chance for you to get your artwork out there and get some exposure. 


What do you charge?

That depends on the project. Some projects involve one simple drawing, others require a hundred pages of content and design work along with photos and illustrations.

Generally speaking, a full color 1/4 page image costs about ¥8,000 (about $80)

For larger projects or image sets I will make an estimate based on what you need, what I am able to do and how much time it will take.

So let’s talk.


I’ve recently expanded into the world of children’s literature with my first title: Zombies! The Stinking Dead

It’s about two goofball friends who think a zombie horde is right outside their door.

It takes a lot of time, effort, and love to make My English Images, and it’s a real pleasure doing so. If this were a perfect world I’d be able to give all these goodies away for free and would be happy to do so. But I have a family to take care of. So if you like the work you see here, think about making a donation, picking up one of the books or even just telling people about the site.
