STAN YAN grew up in Denver, Colorado and went to school at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he got his bachelor’s degree in accounting. Due to the lack of sex-for-recruiting for accounting students, Yan’s life took the tragic turn into sales for the securities industry, where he wallowed in ethical poverty on-and-off for thirteen years. He’s given up on financial security by taking up freelance cartooning full time since 2005. He’s a member of the Squid Works Comics Cooperative. His credits include creating The Wang, illustrating SubCulture, writing and coloring REVVVelations. He also teaches Graphic Storytelling at the Community College of Aurora and comic and cartooning Summer Camps, workshops, and enrichment programs, so protect your kids!
