Sonny Strait – Voice Actor
Sonny Strait has over 20 years of professional experience in the arts.
Most recognized as the voice of Krillin and Usopp on the wildly popular Dragon Ball and One Piece franchises as well as an illustrator for the most famous, independently published comic book series Elfquest.
As a voice actor, Strait is considered to be one of the most recognized voice actors in the business. He’s played numerous roles including Maes Hughes in Fullmetal Alchemist, and Cartoon Network’s laid back, robot host Toonami TOM. He has also worked as a writer and director on several TV series including Dragon Ball Z, Escaflowne, Lupin III and Yuri on Ice.
As a comic book artist he has 17 published works to date including his work on Elfquest (published by DC Comics). He’s considered one of the top Elfquest artists from its over 30-year history.
In 2007, he wrote and illustrated a graphic novel about a reluctant punk rock, faerie princess named Goat. The book, called “We Shadows”(published by Tokyopop) was nominated by The American Library Association for Best Graphic Novel in 2008.
Recently he returned to Elfquest as a colorist for Dark Horse Comics and was a major contributor on the artist retrospective book “Line of Beauty; The Art of Wendy Pini” (Flesk Publishing).
He continues acting today and teaches at Sonny Strait Studios in Denton TX.
