Clay Butler is the creator of the weekly alternative political comic strip Sidewalk Bubblegum, co-founder of Claytowne Productions documentary video production company and creator of the online PC Technology humour magazine Pctyrant (an oldie but a goodie), A darn good illustrator, cartoonist, graphic designer, web designer, concert photographer and writer, Clay has been working professionally since 1984.

Jim Campbell is a professional comic-book letterer, one-time writer (perhaps again in the future) and occasional artist—although his enthusiasm rather outstrips his actual ability. He knows more about print production than mortal man was meant to know and has scanned more images than you’ve had hot dinners. Unless you’re 90 years old.

Dan D’Addario has been drawing as far back as he can remember. It wasn’t until he was in college, that one of his art instructors encouraged him to try doing caricature drawings for a High School Graduation party. He was hooked! Since then Dan has never looked back! Dan is an illustrator and caricaturist in Macomb Township, Michigan. His career spans almost 30 years as a graphic designer in the automotive field. From 1996 until 2008, Dan drew editorial cartoons for Crain’s Detroit Business Magazine.

A native of the United Kingdom, cartoonist Alex Hallat has never had any art training—just a limited attention span, a love of comics, and a tendency to doodle in lectures at college. She started cartooning full-time in 1999 and was immediately hired as the cartoonist for Brighton’s daily newspaper. In 2003, Alex immigrated to New Zealand but currently lives in the leafy bayside suburb of Elwood, Melbourne in Australia. She has clients in the UK, New Zealand, and Australia and works with the American syndicate King Features, which distributes her comic strip, Arctic Circle.

Joe Oesterle is an award-winning writer and illustrator. He has worked as the Art Director of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle apparel division and performed double-duty as Art Director and Senior Editor at National Lampoon. His work has appeared on television, radio, books, magazines, and websites. Joe is especially proud of the fact that a humorous animated short he wrote, directed, and voiced has been on display at the Smithsonian Institution since 2001.
