Unable to choose between comics & computers, Richard Stevens was lucky enough to be born at the right time to make webcomics. His strip Diesel Sweeties (http://dieselsweeties.com) has been on the web since 2000 and was syndicated into newspapers in 2007. He makes lots and lots of t-shirts and drinks far too much coffee.
Meredith Gran was born in 1984, and has been to a lot of diners. She has a degree in animation from the School of Visual Arts in New York, and her webcomic Octopus Pie (http://octopuspie.com) has been online since 2007.
