About Me

Shawn Richison is a Comicbook and Graphic Novel Artist, a Cartoonist, a Penciler, an Inker, a Letterer, a would-be Colourist, a Concept Artist, a Graphic Designer, an Illustrator, a Storyboard Artist and a home-schooled Web Designer. He's been at it for over 30 years, but only in the last decade has it become a professional endeavour.


From 1991 to 1998, Shawn was a rock star and toured the world making people scream while sleeping til noon, but unfortunately, things ultimately didn't work out. Luckily for him, the comics back up plan fell into place. Shawn's first professionally published work, the graphic novel Drive, proved to be an incredible learning experience and Shawn has continued to grow as an artist with every subsequent project. Shawn's list of clients include:
  • Frequency Press
  • Caruso Comics
  • ApeCMX
  • Invest Comics
  • Underbelly Comics
  • 215Ink
  • WendelFIlm
In addition to his upcoming solo graphic novel Legend of the Sunset People, Shawn is continuing to persue logo design and other illustration work. He is loves to experiment with subject matter, form and style and is an avid collaborator.

Shawn lives with his wife and their two cats up on the mountain in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
