Andy Runton at STAPLE!

We are very pleased and excited to announce that Andy Runton will be appearing at STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo!

Andy is the creator of the breakout all-ages series of graphic novels, Owly, published by Top Shelf, which features a kind little vegetarian owl who's always searching for new friends and adventure. Relying on a mixture of symbols, icons, and expressions to tell his silent stories, Runton's work showcases both his gift for characterization and his love of wildlife and the outdoors. His animated and heartwarming style has made him a favorite of both fans and critics alike. The Owly series has earned him multiple awards including the Howard E. Day Memorial Prize, the Harvey Award, two Ignatz Awards, and the 2006 Eisner Award for "Best Publication for a Younger Audience". He currently resides in the greater-Atlanta area, where he's working full-time on the next Owly graphic novel. For more on Andy's work visit:
