About Studio Anti Thesis
Studio Anti Thesis is a group of pro-amateur artists and writers from Madison, Wisconsin who create small press comics. Our works appears as self-published zines and online at http://www.studioantithesis.com
We are influenced by a wide variety of Japanese, European and American comic artists and our work fuses elements of these distinct traditions. In addition to creating comics, we also organized educational presentations and encourage other budding comic artists in their endeavors.
In 2003, Stacie volunteered to illustrate a new comic by Kim. Five years later, she completed Tabloid Roulette.
Pete initially joined the studio to help print our books, starting with our first Antithezine in 2003. It wasn't long before he started talking about making his own comic. His first attempt, Magenta Plate, didn't quite come together. In 2007 he started drawing like a man possessed on a new idea -Deverish Also. He completed the first chapter of his new comic Deverish Also, in 2008. Besides posting a page week, he's also the major force behind the new website.
Back in 2002, Maciek volunteered to be the artist for the studio's first comic, Death and Transfiguration. He had no formal art training, but neither did anyone else. He's learned a lot since then, both by working as the artist of Temping for Evil (2006) and Build Your Own Boyfriend (2003), and by attending classes through the local technical college. He's hoping to complete his graphic design degree in 2009.
Kim is the writer for most of the studio's comics - Tabloid Roulette, Build Your Own Boyfriend, Of 2 Minds, Temping for Evil, and Death and Transfiguration. When she ran out of artists to bring her stories to life, she took to penciling Merylion Factor. She keeps a file on her computer of plot synopses for future comics, so if you're an artist with extra time on your hands ...
Allie's been drawing comic characters since she was a teenager. In addition to being the artist for Of 2 Minds, she is working on a fantasy comic of her own. She is also one half of Rainarc Rhapsody, a freelance art group specializing in prints and commissions. [should include link to rain-arc.com if we don't have it elsewhere.]
Ray is a concept person, a idea generator extraordinaire, as well as a writer and 3d-Artist. He came up with the initial idea behind the comic Death and Transfiguration and has been working on several science fiction stories. His work has also been featured in several of our Antithezines.
Lor created the covers for two of the studio's compilation zines, The Antithezine. He is the other, more masculine, half of Rainarc Rhapsody. His forte is science-fiction style art with an emphasis in mecha. He has a fantastic set of new eyes on any project, and offers much advice for various other members.
