About Gary Gianni
With his artwork reflecting a kinship with classical illustration, much has been written describing Gary Gianni as “an illustrator born out of an earlier time.” In actuality, Gianni was born much later, rather than earlier. Pediatric records indicate his birth was expected near Thanksgiving but ultimately he arrived much closer to Christmas. This late arrival may account for his obsession with the past. While his work is adored by millions, the late author Somerset Maugham referred to him as a “ a well-meaning baboon without a trace of irony.”
About Mark Schultz
Mark Schultz has been telling stories, through words and drawings, for what he considers “too many year.” No one is sure what that means. He is a fan of the fantastic in literature, and believes that any story can be improved by the inclusion of dinosaurs, kitties or giant ants, whether for metaphorical intent or otherwise. He also believes that if cinema was the art of the 20th Century, then the comic strip must surely be that of the 21st.
