I’m a founding member of The International Cartoonist Conspiracy.

I work at WORLD MONSTER HQ, The most terrifying cartooning studio in Minneapolis.

I’ve been a professional digital artist in the advertising industry for over 15 years. I’ve made my living doing animation, motion graphics, interactive development, illustration, cartooning, image editing, video editing, 3d modeling… basically, doing whatever kind of graphical work a project required. It is conceivable I may have built more banner advertisements than any other person alive. Many of the ad campaigns I have worked on have been seen by millions of people.

Clients I have done work for included Target, Phillips Distilling, Best Buy, Country Inns & Suites, Fifth Third Bank, Nike Bauer, Saucony, Discover Boating, Kraftmaid, Minnesota Lottery, Minnesota Wild, General Mills, Optum Health, Whole Foods, Kuhlman, The University of Minnesota, NSF, United Healthcare, Belize, and many, many more.

I’m a founding member of The International Cartoonist Conspiracy, and the instigator of the annual cartooning event Mini-Comics Day. I regularly post webcomics, I have created numerous comic books, and I’ve often collaborated with other artists to create comics anthologies and jam comics.

I was a featured artist in Hot Ink: Comic Art show at the Minnesota Museum of American Art, and in the book Superheroes, Strip Artists & Talking Animals: Minnesota’s Contemporary Cartoonists, published by the Minnesota Historical Society. My comics have been included in anthologies such as Lutefisk Sushi Volumes A-E, BIG FUNNY, Alley Cat and Just Add Ink.

I recently finished work illustrating a children’s book, and I am currently working on developing and illustrating a card game.

If you have an opportunity you think my skills might be a good fit for, I’d love to hear about it. You can email me at sstwalley(at)gmail.com.
