Maria Capelle Frantz
Maria Frantz is a cartoonist, illustrator, and animator who is very fond of the mystical and the fantastical. She was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where she spent the first years of her life playing in the woods, making up stories, and regularly perusing the local comic shop. She won a Scholastic Art and Writing Awards gold medal for her short comic, "Death Wish." She currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon, where she spends her days baking, sewing, and drawing a ridiculous amount of comics.
