Brad Guigar has been creating a daily comic strip for over 15 years. “Evil Inc“ (http://www.evil-inc.com) runs Monday-through-Saturday on the Web, and it also appears in front of nearly 100,000 newspaper readers every weekday. Evil Inc is a corporation that is run by super-villains by super-villains. The CEO (Chief Evil Operator) is Evil Atom, a Silver-Age bad guy who discovered that he could do more evil if he did it “legally.”
Guigar is considered by many to be a webcomics pioneer, having self-published his daily strips and other comics on the Web since February 2000. He has been nominated for the highest honor in comics — the Eisner award — for “Phables,” a year-and-a-half-long weekly series of comics about life in Philadelphia, and he does a weekly single-panel comic, “Courting Disaster,” about sex, love and relationships.
He has published over two dozen collections of his comics, and he is the author of three books on the subject of cartooning: “The Everything Cartooning Book,” “How To Make Webcomics,” and “The Webcomics Handbook.”
He operates a daily tutorial-and-advice site, Webcomics.com, and he teaches Arts Entrepreneurship and Sequential Art (Comics) at Hussian School of Art.
He co-hosts a podcast about making a living as a creative professional — Surviving Creativity. His second podcast, “Hey Comics — Kids!” is recorded with his two sons, Alex (12) and Max (9), during their drive to school.
He is a gifted speaker, having given rousing presentations on topics ranging from comics-on-the-Web to general creativity. He has been a featured panelist at comic conventions and trade shows, and he offered his thoughts on independent Web publishing at Harvard University. And earlier this summer, he premiered his stand-up comedy at Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club.Guigar.com offers samples from these appearances.
Brad lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Caroline, and two boys.
