Ian Cooke Tapia


Ian Cooke Tapia a Panamanian born artist. Skilled in illustration, animation, painting and photography, he brings an extremely visual background, and varied, to his stories.

He concentrates on short stories and poetry, and he tends to write about anything that comes to mind. His stories are of characters and tales, and not bound by the concepts of genre. But if they were, you would know. He feels more comfortable writing about impossible things, greater-than-life events happening to the everyday person.

His early influences were named Thomas Hardy, Edgar Allan Poe, Christopher Hitchens, and Neil Gaiman. He now reads whatever he can find, whenever he can find it.

When not writing, he can be found with a pencil in hand, drawing, drawing and drawing away.
