Malik Battle is an animator, filmmaker, illustrator, and graphic designer hailing from Kansas City, Missouri. He is a storyteller through and through, chiseled and molded from nearly 3,000 hours spent watching anime since being introduced to Bleach by his uncle as kid. Ever since that day, Malik has been chasing the dream of animation, for the hopes of one day animating for an anime studio in Japan. His ambitions have lead Malik into falling in love with the animation process to the same obsessive degree as his love for watching animation itself. Malik plans to pursue his dream while keeping up with his personal creative endeavors and projects, including: writing, filmmaking, drums, and video games.
