Josh Elder (born May 17, 1980 in Carmi, Illinois) is an American journalist, lecturer and writer, primarily of comic books and graphic novels. Ramanda Kamarga was born in Bandung, Indonesia. He grew up wanting to become a fighter pilot, but ended up being an artist. Ramanda started working as a comic illustrator when he was still in college in 2003. At that time, he was selected by one of his professors to participate in a graphic novel project as one of the illustrators. After graduating form Savannah College of Art & Design in 2004, Ramanda was involved in a short animated musical project as character designer and illustrator. One year later, in 2005, Ramanda return to the comic world and worked on the GI Joe series published by Devil's Due Publishing as Background Artist and Inker. Then by mid 2006 to early 2008, Ramanda participated as the illustrator/designer in the 2nd and 3rd volumes of the graphic novel project Psycomm, which was published by TOKYOPOP. Ramanda's personal preference in illustration style on character design is greatly influenced by Japanese manga. He loves simple and clean lines with a hint of realism. At the same time, as an avid fan of the Sci-fi and Fantasy genre, Ramanda's mecha design is very detailed, functional and sometimes a bit gritty. However, Ramanda's keen interest in visual story telling allows him to be versatile and adaptable as an illustrator, depending on the requirement of each project.
