Snow Sez … by T. Shepherd
Snow is an extremely wise cat, so much so that he is considered a guru by the animals who travel far and wide seeking his wisdom. Although he tries to maintain his Zen-like demeanor, it can sometimes be a bit of a struggle as he juggles his feisty tabby cat wife, 13 rambunctious kittens, a critical mother-in-law and an overzealous next-door neighbor, Winky the dachshund. Luckily, Snow tries to seek nirvana each day by meditating, sleeping and eating lots of fish!
Shepherd was born and raised in Arizona and has been drawing since before she can remember. Growing up, her big dream was to be an animator, because she wanted to make her characters come to life. As she grew older, she became fascinated with the idea of making stories come to life. Eventually, that led Shepherd to creating comic strips, in which she could blend both worlds together.
When she’s not creating comics, and when time affords it, Shepherd enjoy traveling, watching comedies, painting, writing and reading. However, her favorite thing to do is spend time with family.

Running for five years in 10 weekly and monthly papers, her first comic strip, Patience and Sarah, featured a single mom and her daughter. Eliot continued cartooning while working as a copywriter and graphic designer and developed a second strip called Sister City, which ran weekly in the Eugene, Oregon, Register-Guard for five years.
