Snowflakes takes place in the worlds of imagination shared by a group of young orphans, somewhere high in the snowcapped Andes. Snowflakes is the story of that imagination running amok, growing into strange adventures, political intrigue and a battle between the factions within and without. Along the way, the children grow friendships, learn to live together and make peace with their strange histories.

G-Man (aka Mikey G) has finally become the superhero he has always wanted to be! But with so many other superheroes out there hogging the spotlight, it's up to G-Man himself to chronicle his own superhero adventures! Part struggling superhero, part struggling cartoonist, G-Man writes and draws this autobiographical comic strip!
Chris Giarrusso grew up on a steady diet of cereal, cartoons and comic books. He began his cartooning education at a young age by whiting-out comic strip word balloons in the daily newspaper and filling in his own dialogue. Soon, he was whiting-out the drawings and replacing them with his own artwork. Eventually, he realized he’d save a lot of time by starting out with blank paper.
Employing this new strategy, Chris launched his career in 2004 with the G-MAN superhero graphic novel series (Image Comics) for young readers, merging his love of superhero adventure with his love of comic strip humor. It wasn't long before the G-Man character began writing and drawing as well, resulting in THE G-MAN SUPER JOURNAL series (Andrews McMeel), and the weekly G-MAN WEBCOMICS comic strip. More information about G-Man and Chris Giarrusso is available at chrisgcomics.com.
Welcome to the weird, wacky, wonderful world of the wombat. Bushy Tales is primarily set at the Bluff in the Australian bush – home of iconic species beloved the world over, and, specifically, Doug the Wombat – and fuses the personalities of its witty characters with that of the bush itself. The strip’s beautiful and beguiling artwork complements the warmth and whimsy of its lovable, if argumentative, denizens. Everyone should have a wombat like Doug in their lives, so come on Down Under, join in the fun and feel on top of the world.
Ian Jones was born in 1955 in Brisbane, the capital city of the state of Queensland in Australia.
Training as a teacher, he spent 12 years teaching in country schools. He used his artistic gift to great effect in his teaching and to the enjoyment of his students. It was during his time teaching that he developed his first comic strip. Nothing happened with this early effort, but it did get Ian started down the path toward being published as a professional cartoonist a couple of years later. In 1980, Ian’s next comic strip was first published in newspapers and he was then published every day for the following 20 years. His greatest success during this time was with his strip, Pearly Gates, which appeared in papers throughout Australia and a few overseas markets.
After this 20-year publishing run, Ian took a break from the world of cartooning. It ended up being a longer break than he anticipated, but when he picked up the pens again, it was with a fresh motivation and a refreshing comic strip concept, resulting in Bushy Tales.
Ian believes that Bushy Tales is the best work he has ever done, and is thrilled with its continued development and the response of readers to it. He loves bringing the iconic characters and the beauty of the Aussie bush to readers around the world.
In addition to teaching, Ian has been a pastor, and the national director of a Christian humanitarian mission organization. He is also an award-winning photographer and an avid independent traveler, having spent time in 45 different countries around the world. Ian has been married to Robyn for 38 years and they have seven (grown) children and, at last count, nine grandchildren.
