Los Angeles based Matt Furie was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1979 and graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware in 2001.
Matt Furie’s drawings come from a mix of child-like enchantment and momentary adult situations. His self proclaimed “children’s book illustrations for adults” combines traditional and modern mark-making for his ripe, cartoon-inspired characters. He has exhibited extensively in the USA and Europe, his comic book series “Boy’s Club” (featuring Pepe the Frog & friends) is collected by Fantagraphics. In 2012 McSweeney’s published Matt’s first children’s book, ‘The Night Riders’, a wordless tale about the adventures of two best friends, a frog and a rat.
Sam Bosma was born in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and grew up in suburban Pennsylvania.

He won a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators in the Institutional category, as well as a Gold Award from Spectrum in 2013 and two Ignatz Awards for his Fantasy Sports books.
