Michael C. Hsiung describes himself as "characterized by a large mustache, a herbivorous diet and a thin yellow protective skin." His artwork consists of line drawings that take on a whimsical, nautical and often comical tone. Hsiung draws things like drug rugs, narwhals, centaurs, wizards and the ouroboros. His work sometimes ends up as tattoos on people's bodies. Hsiung says that he has a "relatively small brain for a mammal of his size," but if that is true his artwork doesn't reflect it.
