Patrick Dean was born in Rome, Georgia, and relocated to Athens to attend the University of Georgia. After four and a half years, he graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. Then he washed dishes and cut open his drawing hand. Then he quit washing dishes and took a day job that did not involve sharp things. Then he left that job, too. His comics and illustrations appeared weekly in Athens' Flagpole Magazine for a decade and have been published in Legal Action Comics, Typhon, The Comic Eye, Vice Magazine, and The Oxford American Magazine. He lives with his wife, two kids, a cat, and a dog that acts like a cat.
Write him an and he'll appreciate it.
