Cartoonist Denver Brubaker grew up in Mears, MI where he spent a lot of time drawing, watching cartoons, and daydreaming. As an adult, not much has changed. If he were not a cartoonist; he thinks it would have been cool to be a paleontologist who traveled the world and had awesome adventures like Indiana Jones. He lives in Chicago, IL with his fiancee Jillian and their dog Roxy. Denver is the creator of the comic Tales of a Checkered Man and works as a freelance cartoonist/illustrator for both private clients and companies such as Marvel Comics/Rittenhouse Archives, Upper Deck/Fleer, Cryptozoic Entertainment, and Aw Yeah Publishing.
