Ben Humeniuk has been cartooning since 2005, illustrating the graphic novel Makin' It and winning student awards for his tenure at the Baylor Lariat. With a stack of mini comics, single panel gags and a college strip under his belt, he's tackling his first original long-form work (in the shadow of one of his cartooning heroes, no less). Ben lives in Texas with his wife and two kids, and seeks to create work that encourages empathy and understanding. Find him at, his @Hipogram Tumblr, and on Twitter @BenHumeniuk.
