The Shining Mantis is the Brooklyn based collaboration of Ernest Concepcion and Mike Estabrook. They are known for their epic battle drawings, called Kangarok!!! Pandarok: The Birth of Kangis Khan 2009, was held at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) offices as a commissioned piece.

This photo of ‘Pandarok’ was taken in 2022. It is well maintained and just as vibrant as I remember. Thank you, LMCC.
