Art & Story is a weekly podcast where three cartoonists talk about comics, illustration and storytelling.

Mark Rudolph began making comics in the third grade and hasn’t looked back. One love in a lifetime is enough for most people, but he met his second great love several years later… Metal.
Not one to be a passive fan, he created an extreme metal fanzine, The Requiem, which began his association with the underground metal scene. Mark’s work has been seen on album and magazine covers, t-shirts, posters and playbills. He has done work for Relapse Records, Decibel Magazine and Marvel Entertainment among others. Mark’s comic work includes many titles published by his imprint CV Comics including: John Oxbow: Man Out of Time, WAR, Mulligan’s Run and Closing Doors which was featured on a PBS documentary.

He lives in the Detroit area.

San Francisco Bay Area native, Kevin Cross, is an illustrator and cartoonist currently living in Portland, Oregon with his rad wife and awesome cat. He has done storyboarding, design, and illustration work for many clients including Marvel Entertainment, IDW Publishing, THQ Games, Real Skateboards, and Spitfire Wheels. When not working on professional freelance illustration assignments, he writes and illustrates his own funny books: Monsters Are Go! and Monkey Mod. Additionally, he received a BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Jerzy Drozd has worked on comics published by Antarctic Press and Glencoe McGraw-Hill. He has also self-published many of his own comics, including The Front: Rebirth and others found on the Sugary Serials comics anthology site. He teaches comics around the Southeast Michigan area and beyond at schools, libraries, and universities. He taught to over 700 students through the ArtServe Michigan Literacy Arts Comic Book Project, led professional development classes at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and is the co-founder of the Kids Read Comics Celebration.
