Shawn is a dark art artist from Ohio. He has been working at his craft professionally for 9 years as an independent artist as well as an artist for the widely popular webcomic series, Cyanide & Happiness. He is also a co-owner and artist for Ohio based lifestyle brand, Any Means Necessary clothing.
Though he has been known for his association with Cyanide & Happiness, in 2016 Shawn created the mental health series, Inktober Illness, as part of the annual Inktober series which completely altered his art direction to focus more on artwork that helps create a conversation on mental health. His art has been all over the internet and bodies of many fans and it’s still spreading. It’s been life-changing, to say the least, that an artist from Ohio is able to connect with so many who feel like they don’t have a voice.
