Ryan Sellers
Inks
The clean Inked lines found throughout the Hero Cats series are handled by the very talented Mr. Sellers. You’ll be hard pressed to find another artist that is as versatile and capable as this Georgia native. A man that loves his comic art, Ryan takes on the role of inker with confidence and precision that can be seen on every page. Just don’t mention the word “rubble” to the man… Marcus sends his apologies for having him ink all that rubble. So much rubble… (shudder)

 

Omaka Schultz

The talented Colorist on the Hero Cat project, Omaka brings the clean line art to life with amazing textures and brilliant colors! With an education from Savannah College of Art in Animation and Minor in Sequential art, he’s equipped with all the tools he needs to make these pages sing.

 


Keek Stewart

Keek Stewart is a writer and artist currently operating out of Georgia. When Keek was four her father made the mistake of handing her a comic strip, and her healthy obsession began. Having finished her degree in Writing and Rhetoric, Keek spends her time fusing her expertise in rhetoric with her knowledge of comic books. Maybe she’ll save all of the worlds with it. In the meantime, she’s loitering about editing your favorite cat-centric comics at her local comic shop, and debating the implications of a world without a Batman.

Marcus Williams

Pencils/ Colors -- Hero Cats 1-9
"I can say working on “Hero Cats” opened a lot of opportunity for educating myself on the actual comic industry. Self-marketing myself as an artist was actually something I did over the years that actually benefited my career most."

Stationed in Atlanta Ga, he spends his time toiling away late nights as a professional illustrator. A proud father of two, he somehow manages to steal enough time to create loads of artwork and check homework.

A graphic designer and illustrator, Briana also uses her extensive print experience to aid in the comic’s print processing. She has worked on over 1,000 comic pages in the past decade, including her own online series Rune Master: Tales of a Demon Slayer, The Book on Me, and Simon Says. A super geek through and through, she is an enthusiastic fan of many things including comics, video games, RPGs, fantasy, science fiction, social studies and world history. Aside from Hero Cats, Briana leads the design and development for an upcoming tabletop RPG, Waracle: Ancient Adventures. Her work has been featured at the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum and in Knights of the Dinner Table.

 

Julie Barclay
Colors/Flats
Our legendary “Flatter” for the Hero Cats pages, which means she fills in all the clean line art with simple color, so that Omaka can quickly select the base color and enhance the pages further. With a Graphic Design degree from Florida State University, she makes quick work of bringing these pages to life from their sea of blankness! (What? That’s a thing y’know… the sea of blankness.)Julie quickly graduated to lead colorist.
