Arne Cooper (creator/writer/artist)

In the man’s own modest words: “I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. In grade school, I drew dinosaurs. In middle school, I started drawing and painting people. As an adult, I have done a lot of portrait art on commission. About three years ago, I literally stumbled across 3D art while searching the internet for a 3D model that could be posed for use as reference in my artwork. I discovered DAZ Studio and have been creating 3D and digital art ever since.”

Arne lives in Enid, OK.


Brendan Jones (editor/writer/letterer)

Brendan Jones is a writer and artist ensconced in Portland, OR. A voracious sponge of pop culture in its many forms, he has dabbled in the worlds of film, TV, comics, and rock ‘n’ roll. Brendan is probably best known as the writer/artist of the quasi-notorious webcomic Breakfast Of The Gods, a dark, Watchmen-esque epic featuring the icons of the breakfast cereal world.

He’s very happy to be working on a comic where he doesn’t have to draw.
