Luke Kyle

Luke grew up learning how to read from X-Men and Captain America comics.  After getting his first big ol' box of Crayola's at the age of six, he hasn't spent a day without doodling, drawing, or creating some form of art in one way or another.  While a busy home and work life keep him from being a frequent guest on the convention circuit, he's always up to set up at a local festival and enjoy meeting his fellow nerd-culture junkies as well as offering on-demand cartoon commission work and a smattering of his artistic endeavors.  Luke is also an amateur game designer, and will usually have a project or two for the masses to check out.  In his free time Luke enjoys professional wrestling, baseball, and treating his pet guinea pigs as if they were royalty.
