Stephen Kissel is an illustrator and cartoonist living in Virginia with his energetic cat.

Whatever project he takes on, his aim is to bring a bright, playful enthusiasm. When not making things, he might be found searching for the perfect bagel, browsing various antique shops, or teaching classes at his job with a local non-profit.
