In Brief:
Ethan Slayton has been drawing since he was three years old and keeps plugging away at it.  He’s attended art schools such as the Maine College of Art, where he completed the foundation course, and graduated from the Joe Kubert School of Illustration and Design in 1998.

Ethan moved back to Vermont and since then, has experienced the joys of self publishing his own work in 2000, taught youngsters in day camp for Burlington City Arts for roughly the last five years, been an award winning voice talent for Shadow Productions and has had minor success involving the Comic Book industry.

Ethan decided to pick up and move to Portland, Oregon recently where he heard the weather was nice, art was in bloom and the beer hops were flavorable. 

So far, so good.

Upon moving, Ethan got an art show and met a number of the local comic art scene enthusiasts that are involved in making Stumptown Comics Fest a huge event in the local Portland area.  Continuing his education in Art and the business of making comics is Ethans primary goal and it seems those goals are being met little by little and year by year.

Ethan is completely open to comments, questions, queries, free beer, silly dialogue and job inquiries via e-mail.
